iPhone autofill username/password

  • On a lot of websites after you log in once, your iPhone asks if you would like to save your username and password credentials for future logins. Ease of Access I should say.

    Every time, It pops up on one of my three woltlab installations, I press the username to autofill and both boxes stay blank. Woltlab this is the only instance I have not had my info auto-filled. I was just curious if this was a bug.

  • iOS Safari's autofill breaks if the username input field was focused via JavaScript. You can even reproduce this yourself by opening the login dialog, clicking somewhere else (e. g. on the text above) and then tap into the input field again. If you now select the stored password, everything works as expected and the values are inserted. This is somewhat related to this: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8111275

    I'm making a change with the next update that simply disables autofocus for the username field in iOS Safari.
