Autofill is a feature used in several browsers to help prevent you from filling out fields over and over again. This can sometimes cause an issue while using your MINDBODY site due to autofill filling out unintended fields and accidentally saving over needed information. This has been know to occur for billing information and passwords. Follow the steps below according to your OS and browser to disable this feature.

 

Windows

Internet Explorer (IE)

The Internet Explorer AutoComplete feature can be enabled and disabled by following the steps below.

  1. Open Microsoft Internet Explorer.
  2. Click Tools and then Internet Options.
  3. In the Internet Options window click the Content tab.
  4. Click the AutoComplete button.
  5. Check or uncheck the options you want to have or not have AutoComplete. Below is a brief explanation of what each of the options are for.
  • Web page addresses - AutoComplete for the address typed in the address bar.
  • Forms - Enable a user to fill out fields that are commonly completed such as e-mail, address, phone number, etc.
  • User names and passwords on forms - Any forms that are requiring usernames. This can be helpful for users who are frequently needing to enter their username and password. However, can also be a security risk if that computer is used or accessible by other users.

 

FireFox

If you don't want Firefox to remember what you've entered into form fields, you can turn off the auto form fill feature:

  1. Click the menu button  and choose Options

  2. Change your settings; Click Done. This will help eliminate unwanted saved data from being autofilled.
