I'm using the Chrome Browser. I enjoy the "automatic filling" that it uses to fill in things like my address when I'm shopping online.

Sometimes I get a message that says:

"This webpage has disabled automatic filling for this form"

Is there a way that I can tell Chrome to ignore what the webpage wants and just give me what I want?

I'm not talking about passwords, I'm talking about Chrome's automatic filling in of things like my email address, zip code, etc.

For Example: https://www.kansas.gov/ump/register/account?

  • I found this on StackOverflow. I'm not sure if it'll help much, but it'll clear some things out...

    +1 for "ignore what the webpage wants and just give me what I want". Could not have said it better myself. Sep 15 '13 at 17:22

Inherently there is no option to "auto-enable" completion even if a web page has disabled it. The web page disables it using the property autocomplete=off in an element. There is a chrome extension: Auto-Complete = On

You can use that to turn on auto-complete for the elements that are disabled.

  • I figured that I'd probably need an extension to accomplish what I wanted. I'll have to do some testing to see if this extension works. Dec 6 '12 at 16:19

    The Autocomplete = on extension works sometimes but not always, so you may still need to use Inspect Element to edit the form property, as @curiousguy explains. Just beware, one reason people use this tag is because their crappy Javascript validation code can't correctly handle autofill. Sep 24 '13 at 19:00
  • I think that extension was removed? Jan 6 '15 at 15:24
  • A new one here; Force Autocomplete Feb 24 '15 at 22:02

If you do not want to install an extension:

You can right click on the form, select Inspect Element and edit the auto-complete attribute of the <form> element directly: change autocomplete="off" to autocomplete="".

    have to do this several times in order to bypass all of the fields. It would be easier to just type in my name/address/city/state/zip Jan 27 '15 at 16:50
  • It would be easier but less pretty.

Also your form must submit via POST. If you're submitting via ajax, do <form autocomplete="on" method="post">, omitting the action attribute.
