Hi so I have noticed some websites give me a different autofill button to others. some pull up a blue box saying (use name of website login) or one will appear just below the keyboard. does. anyone know what's going on please

Thanks

I guess it has to do with how websites handle their login procedure.
Since either option works as well I don’t pay much attention to it.

Might the LinkdIn one log you in completely utilizing your LinkdIn credentials. This includes your username and password. Looks like it will handle the entire process and log you in once you select that button.

The Twitter page is going to only autofill that information but not complete the login process, I believe.

I'm not sure why they behave differently. I'd assume it has to do with the websites themselves as @Tartarus mentioned.

thanks guys. yes that's right Quis89. I've noticed that the blue one does log me in automatically without me having to click login etc but the other one I have to click login, are you noticing it too. any idea why this is the case. thanks.
