Saving credentials for Koodo self serve shortcut


So I added a Safari shortcut on my home screen to access Koodo’s self serve site to monitor usage and so on.

The problem is is that it won’t save my credentials. Every time I need to enter my email and password. Very annoying doing this multiple times per day. Is there ANY way to have the credentials saved?

thanks.

I've never used Safari but it should be possible. See if the link below helps.

Thanks Mats!

That helped a lot. I used the iOS password manager to enter credentials and it now fills them in on Koodo’s site after authenticating with Face ID. Not seamless as I still need to tap a couple of times to log in but no longer need to type credentials over and over.

Thanks again!

@Ddsdude the iOS password manager may be okay, but you might want to look at alternatives--particular if you use multiple platforms--maybe you have a Windows PC at home or work, sometimes use Chrome instead of Safari on your Mac (if you have one), etc. There are several excellent cross-platform cloud-synced password managers out there. I've used LastPass for years, though I know many iPhone users prefer 1Password.

Maybe have a look at these as starting points, if you're interested in learning more:

Awesome thank you!

The built in password manager in iOS does the job in this case but I’ll definitely look at the third party options for other things.
