Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    You should mention that Firefox does not have this issue.

    I tried your example by entering my name. Autofill also put my email in the field, but I did not get any warning message from Safari. Thanks for your article, but I’m not sure I can trust Safari to warn me about this issue.

      yeah you can but warning is not obvious, so be wary

      • Jonny Evans says:

        (this is also why I wrote this as warning is easy to miss/ignore, so you — my readers — deserve and need to know this. Trying to help you with things like this is my job!

    I see what you mean now, so I’ll be watching this in the future. Thanks!

    I must be blind — I do not see the warning that Phil and Jonny see.
