      Logging into accounts with Autofill

      Note: Some apps will not work with Autofill because of their developers design. We cannot change the design of those apps, but if you find an app that is not working properly with Autofill, let us know at support@stashpass.ca and we will look into it.

      1. Open the Stash app on your smartphone and leave it open in the background.
      2. Go to the website or the app that you are wanting to log into and tap into the username field.
      3. An "Autofill with Stash" action button will appear and you can tap it to begin the process.
      4. A view of your Stash app will appear. If Stash recognizes the app making the request it will automatically grab the information for you. (If you are using a StashPass, you will need to tap your StashPass when prompted.)
      5. If Stash does not recognize the app making the request, you will need to select which Company to associate with this app for future requests. (Note: logging into accounts through a browser will not save the association for future requests. You will have to select which Company to log in with each time.)
      6. The app you are logging into should return with your log in credentials entered into the appropriate fields.
