Different operating systems provide different levels of support for allowing a password manager app like Codebook to assist you with directly logging in to websites and filling out forms with the passwords and other data stored in Codebook. Where possible we've been sure to provide integration with the operating system's features (typically referred to as AutoFill), and to provide our own global keyboard shortcut, Secret Agent, where more flexibility is required.
