Thanks guys. I wish there would be an alert, asking for a fingerprint to allow 
auto-fill. Short of that, is there an easier way to do this? One of the 
responses in this thread mentioned tapping a point on the screen, but how does 
that work for VoiceOver users? My workaround is to use the prediction above the 
keyboard, but if there's an easier way, I'd love to know about it. Thanks.
