We’ve heard you and made a lot of improvements along the way, and we thank you for that!

Bring you peace of mind by managing your personal info​

On average, a consumer has 90 online accounts which need passwords. Remembering passwords of those accounts is hard. Let Autofill save and remember your passwords and other info for you, or manually add one to make it available whenever you need it.

Help protect your accounts by generating strong passwords​

According to the Verizon’s Data Breach Investigation Report 2021, 61% of data breaches happen due to leveraged passwords. Autofill helps you stay safer online by creating strong, unique passwords with different combinations of numbers and characters using our new Password Generator every time you create an account or change the password of an existing one. If coming up with new passwords is hard, we know remembering the ones you used is harder. Autofill will remember generated passwords for you whenever you use one—no matter which device you’re using.

Login or fill forms with one tap​

Typing passwords and details like your credit card info or delivery address every time you shop online is tedious and prone to mistakes. Let Microsoft Autofill automatically type your info for you to save time and avoid mistakes.

Save Passwords user interface

Access your data wherever you are, whenever you need it​

Want to sign in on your phone but the password is saved on your computer? Autofill lets you sync your passwords and addresses across devices and makes them available to be filled automatically, including on your desktop devices using Microsoft Edge.

Not using the Microsoft Edge browser yet on your computer? We have you covered with the Microsoft Autofill Extension on Google Chrome.

Be the only one to access your data​

All Microsoft Autofill data is encrypted on both your device and the cloud when synced across devices. As an added measure of security, customers who autofill passwords or payment info with Authenticator will need to verify their identity using bio gestures. This ensures that only the rightful owner of the device can access and autofill passwords and payment info.

All new passwords are generated using an enterprise-grade password generation algorithm and have built-in randomness. Consequently, they’re difficult to guess and don’t follow any patterns or words, making them nearly immune to brute-force attacks.

Our goal is to help our customers safeguard their digital life and access their data in a simple, more secure manner. Your feedback can help us make Autofill even better, so please take this short survey to tell us about things we can improve on and help us choose what to work on next.
