Autofill

Autocomplete, Autocorrect, & Autofill

AutoComplete remembers how you filled out your name, address, and other info in web forms, which makes filling out similar forms in the future quicker and easier and offers suggestions as you type. Autocorrect corrects mistakes, misspelled words, and can be modified with user content. Autofill completes information stored in application or browser. As useful as these features are, there are also pitfalls.  The information stored, can be a source for malicious intent.
