    Can I stop the browsers autofill?

    Asked by Neville Ross on March 21, 2012 at 03:12 AM

    I have a booking form for a weekend workshop. It has several 'name' fields. The first is the name of the person filling out the booking form. The other names are additional names that might be included in the same booking. The browser's autofill (I'm using Safari) populates each field with the original name. So, unless the extra names are deleted, I get them all.

    Any ideas?

    Hi,

    I have tried to use it on Google Chrome and the autofill did not fill in the other names. This feature is actually dependent on the user's web browser. Today's web browsers have a built-in feature that automatically fills out form fields.

    I know it happens in Safari and Firefox (Mac). I'm thinking that if I can fool the browse into thinking the field is not a name field. Can you think how I might do that?

    Unfortunately, there isn't one that I can think of. However, there maybe a specific code that would disable autofill for a specific browser. You might want to check it out.

    So, here's what I've done. I've replaced the other name fields with regular text fields and called the 'person 2', 'person 3', etc. That seems to work (though there is only one field for the name, not two. I can live with that).
