In June, DC-based Personal – a startup that provides people with a secured digital data vault to store personal information, passwords, and files – launched Fill It, a database replete with forms of any and all types, with an infrastructure that allows for secure and automatic form-filling. Today, the company launched Fill It Mobile, giving users that same secure, one-touch autofill experience in mobile apps and sites.
“Billions of hours and dollars are lost each year as people struggle to find and re-enter all kinds of information on paper and Web forms. The problem is even worse in the rapidly growing mobile economy,” said cofounder and CEO Shane Green. “Fill It Mobile delivers on the promise of a 1-touch mobile experience wherever you want.”
Currently only available for Android (though Personal says it’s working on a release for the upcoming iOS 8), Fill It Mobile gives users the flexibility and ease of filling out forms right from their phones (and saving that form data for quick, one-touch filling on any other future mobile forms), while at the same time getting assurance that all of their data remains secured. The app also allows users to launch and complete forms using QR codes.
As people move away from more traditional access to the Internet – shifting from personal computers to tablets and mobile devices – there has been an overwhelming demand for mobile-friendly experiences. With an initial catalog of 140,000 indexed online forms, Personal now has more than 225,000 of the most-used online forms, enabling developers and companies to allow for Fill It functionality for their users.
“With minimal integration, developers and companies can make all of their forms, sign-ups, and checkouts 1-touch and get back to focusing on how to deliver the best data-driven products and experiences,” said Green. If a company’s mobile app or website is enabled with Fill It, then people can simply launch the form via Fill It Mobile for quick data input.
In addition to the launch of Fill It Mobile, Personal has made updates to its Data Vault app for both iOS and Android. Earlier this month, the company launched a video series on data privacy and security.
