The "Auto-Copy on URL Launch" option was originally designed for iPhones before multi-tasking was available as a way to get data out of mSecure when you need to use data in mSecure on a website. The basic idea is when you tap on a web address inside of a record, it will launch the website in Safari and then have already copied information in the record to the clipboard to be able to paste into the web form. Let's go through the most common example of how this feature is used. To start with we need to turn it on. Go to your main mSecure screen and tap on the "i" in the bottom corner as shown in Figure 1.
Next scroll down in the menu to the "Auto-Copy on URL Launch" option as shown in Figure 2.
After you tap on this you will be taken to the setup screen for this option with two sliders available as shown in Figure 3.
Next you can turn on and off these two sliders. There is one to copy the username and one to copy the password. We are going to demonstrate the most common variation which is just the password option turned on. Toggle the second toggle as shown in Figure 4 with the blue underline.
Now tap on the "Preferences" button in the top left corner, it is highlighted with a red box in Figure 4. Now we are going to go to the main view and open our test Work Email record. You can follow along with any record that has a URL, username and password, such as a Web Login. So the detail view for the record will look like Figure 5.
The URL (highlighted in the red box) is a blue link we can click on, the username is easy; JohnDoe. The password (underlined in blue) in this case is easy as it is "password". So now we are going to tap on the URL link and it is going to open the website as shown in Figure 6.
Once the website is loaded like in Figure 6 we can type in the easy username as shown in Figure 7.
Now we are going to move the cursor to the password field and press and hold until the "Paste" button pops up like in Figure 8.
Tap on "Paste" and it will put the password into the password field and we are ready to login to the website as shown in Figure 8.
Now in this example the username and password was easy and we might not even need to use this feature. However, if you start using our <Password Generator> feature then the passwords will become a lot more complicated and something like this can be very useful. You can also choose to have it copy the username instead of the password. And finally you can choose to have it copy both the username and the password. However, like with all computing devices, the "Clipboard" has only one spot. Because of this we have to combine the username and password into one line. So in the example above if we had mSecure set to copy the username and password, when you tapped on paste it would paste in this: JohnDoe:password So the username is first and then a colon and then the password. This can be helpful if all of your usernames and passwords are complicated. Otherwise, the most common way to configure this feature is just using the password toggle on and the username toggle off.
