Manage Autofill on forms in Chrome

Save time filling out forms by using Chrome Autofill. Autofill saves your information every time you fill out a form so the next time you're in a form, you'll see a drop-down list of options to choose from.

Save credit cards & buy things online

You can add, update, and delete credit cards in Chrome or in Google Wallet.

Cards saved in Chrome show up in forms whenever you’re using Chrome.

Cards saved in Wallet show up in forms only when you’re signed in to Chrome and you have a Wallet account.

Note: Autofill for Google Wallet isn’t available for iPhones and iPads.

Add and edit credit card info

You can save your credit card info in Chrome the next time you fill out a credit card form: in the box that opens, click or touch Save info.

Choose where to save credit card info

When you save credit card info in Chrome or Google Wallet, you’ll be able to use it to automatically fill out forms for you.

  1. In the credit card field number, choose the credit card you want to use from the list.
  2. Enter the CVC number that’s on the back of your credit card. On American Express cards, it’s on the front.
  3. Leave Keep a copy of this card on this device checked to save the whole card number on your computer or mobile device. This will allow you to skip this step next time you use this card.

Troubleshoot problems

I don’t see my credit card in the dropdown list

If you don’t see your credit card listed in the dropdown list, it could be because:

  • Your credit card info hasn’t been saved in Chrome and you need to add the credit card.
  • Autofill doesn’t work with that website and you need to enter the credit card info to buy something.
I entered my CVC number, but it didn’t work

If the CVC number you entered wasn’t correct, Chrome temporarily locks you out after two tries. Wait and then try again. If it’s still not working, contact your bank.
