    Hi! I have several name fields on my form... Owner Name, Registered Name, Call Name, etc.

    They are all being automatically filled with the Owner Name when autofill is used to complete their address, phone, email. How can I keep this from happening? Thanks!!

    If you have enabled the AutoFill feature, the data will remain in the browser's cache. You may try loading the form in incognito mode, or use a different browser, so the form will load blank.

    Let us know if you need more help.

    I disabled the AutoFill feature. So the form initially loads blank, but when entering data into the fields the dropdown arrow appears to 'Autofill' from Contacts. When it does that, every field with 'name' in it fills with my name.

    This appears to be the last form you edited: http://www.jotform.us/form/90565725859169 

    Is that the form in question? Did you try clearing your browser's cache? I have filled the form, and each field is filled one by one, no auto-population happens:

    Thanks for looking. I guess it's my browser. Hopefully other people won't be using it!!
