Discussion

This AutoComplete feature suggests possible matches when users are filling in forms. It is possible that this feature will cache sensitive data and store it in the user's profile, where it might not be protected as rigorously as required by organizational policy. If you enable this setting or do not set a value, AutoFill will remain under the control of the user. This will allow them to configure AutoFill profiles and to switch AutoFill on or off at their own discretion.
