FAQ: What is AutoPass and how do I use it on Windows, macOS, iPhone & iPad, or Android?

Last Updated:

eWallet’s Android, iPhone & iPad, macOS, and Windows versions include the AutoPass feature that fills in a username and password on a web page that you’ve accessed by clicking the URL field on a card in your wallet.

AutoPass is available for:

  • Windows (desktop)
  • macOS
  • iPhone and iPad* (also supports AutoFill)
  • Android OS (phones and tablets)*

AutoPass supports the following browsers:

  • Microsoft Edge
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome
  • Apple Safari (on macOS)
  • Other Chromium-based browsers (e.g., Arc)
  • Internet Explorer 6 through 11 (Windows only) (Internet Explorer is no longer a supported browser)

How It Works

For example, if you make a Password card which has the following fields:

URL: my.yahoo.com
User Name: jamestk
Password: 123456

Note: The actual Field Types in the card must be AutoPass Web Link, AutoPass Username, and AutoPass Password.

When you tap an AutoPass URL on a card in your wallet, the page will appear in your browser (or in some cases, an in-app browser control) with the name (e.g., jamestk) and password (e.g., 123456) filled in.

You can turn off AutoPass for the whole wallet, if you don’t want to use it. Use the Options → Enable AutoPass option to turn AutoPass on and off.

Note that AutoPass only handles a fixed number of redirects. If you type https://www.etrade.com into your browser, for example, it is redirected several times before it reaches https://us.etrade.com/e/t/home. In order to protect itself (and you) from sites that redirect over and over again, AutoPass limits the number it accepts on some platforms. If you encounter a site that isn’t working, try pasting the final URL into the card.
