iOS Built-in Browser

Use this article to learn how to use our built-in browser to auto-fill and auto-submit your mSecure login information.

Browser Settings

By default, mSecure sets our built-in browser to be set as the browser of choice. However, you can use Safari instead. If you choose to use the Safari browser, you either select "Auto-Copy on URL Launch" options to automatically copy the username and(or) password. Alternatively, you can use our mSecure Extension in Safari or Chrome to log into your records instead.

You can access these settings by opening and unlocking mSecure > Tapping the Menu icon > Tapping "Settings" > Select "Browser Settings"

Within these settings, you can also clear the Cookies and Data if you'd like to reset the built-in browser, select whether you'd like our built-in browser to Auto-Submit your login information, and set your default home page as well.

Login Record Type

Like other features, our built-in browser depends on our Login record type in order to auto-fill and auto-submit your account information. However, you can use any record with a URL type in order to launch the built-in browser. 

Auto-Fill, Auto-Capture, and Auto-Submit

When using our built-in web browser, your username and password information stored in your Login records will be automatically filled into sign-in forms in order to speed up your browsing experience. Simply tap on a Website field in one of your Login records, and the site will load in mSecure's browser. As soon as a sign-in form is reached on that website, mSecure will attempt to auto-fill and auto-submit the username and password data for your account. If you sign in to an online account that is not yet stored in mSecure as a Login record, mSecure will attempt to auto-capture your credentials as a new Login.

NOTE: Due to the different ways in which websites are developed, it is possible mSecure will not be able to auto-fill, auto-capture and/or auto-submit on certain sites.

Data Insert Menu

Alternatively, you can use the Data Insert feature in the built-in browser to enter credentials and other data into a site's fields.

The menu is available by tapping the icon in the top right corner when in our default browser. You can select the < back option in the Field Fill area in order to access all of your records and their fields through our Data Insert option. The Data insert provides options to specifically view All records, Login records, All Favorites, or Favorite Logins quickly. 

To use the Data insert option:

  1. Tap an input on a website, tap the the Data Insert icon
  2. Tap back to access all of your information (you can select any of the matching fields that show up instead)
  3. Tap the record you'd like to access
  4. Tap the field whose data you'd like to insert in the input

Password Generator

You can easily access the password generator to create strong, random passwords for your login records. Combined with the auto-fill and auto-submit functions, you can use it to quickly and easily update your account passwords using a strong secure random password.

One example of how to use the Password Generator:

  1. Open and unlock mSecure
  2. Tap a Login record to view its details
  3. Tap the URL field
  4. Log into your online account
    • Our auto-fill and auto-submit should make this quick
    • You can use the Data Insert option if needed
  5. Navigate to the website's account password change page
    • Our auto-fill feature will try to auto-fill in the current password for your record
    • There will also be an additional Password Generator icon next to the new password field
  6. Tap the Password Generator icon
  7. Generate the kind of password you would like and tap the "Copy" option
  8. Paste this random password in the New Password and Confirm New Password fields

When updating a Login record's password, mSecure will try to capture this password change. If it detects the password change, it will prompt you to ask if you'd like to update the password for your record. If not successful, you can exit the built-in browser, select the record whose password you changed, and update the password for the record by pasting the randomly generated password in the password field and saving the record.


Lock mSecure

You can quickly lock mSecure by tapping the lock icon

Navigating Backwards and Forward
