Automatic Form-Filling Applications and Software

Avid sweepstakers know that certain tools can help you get the job of entering sweeps done so much quicker. Applications and software that automatically fill in entry forms for online sweeps can save hours of typing allowing you to enter more contests and increase your chances of winning. Here are a few options to help you choose the best one for you.


Roboform allows you to save time accessing your favorite websites by saving your usernames and passwords and logging into these sites for you when you visit them. This software is available for several platforms including Windows, Mac and mobile devices. It also fills in forms quickly with your name, address, phone, email, etc. Besides just using this for sweepstakes, it's also allows you to store payment information so online shoppers would find this useful too. There are free and paid versions of the Roboform. You receive more perks with the paid version. Yearly licenses for the software are available for a minimal fee.

Form Auto Fill is another program that works with the IE browser only. LastPass will help you manage and retrieve passwords and has form-filling options. Like Roboform, there is a free download option, as well as paid premium access which gives you more perks including more access points via mobile devices.

Browser Applications

There are also browser options available. Applications that work with your internet browser will perform the same autofilling function. Autofill is turned on by default in Chrome. You can disable it and change settings through the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar. You can preview the data Chrome enters before you submit the form. Mozilla Firefox has a similar feature called Auto Form Fill and Windows IE uses AutoComplete. Google Toolbar is another freeware option.

Remember to combine these with the email account and Google Voice number you created just for entering sweeps to help protect your privacy. Be sure to use the tools only on websites that you trust especially if you store credit card information.
