The logins and password are then automatically filled in : you just need to log in to the website.

🚨When you log in using auto-complete logins and passwords, the auto-complete pop-up will not appear, even if you manually change fields after auto-complete.

If, when you saved your password on LockPass, you filled in any of the information required for login in the Description field or the optional fields, you will not be able to use the auto-complete feature for those items.

To be able to fill in other fields on the login form (other than logins and passwords) without having to return to the LockPass interface, click on the extension and click on « Website's Passwords ».
