    I recently changed my Facebook password. Now when I bring up the FB app n my IPad and click on login box the keyboard appears and the auto fill option also appears. However when I click on autofill it places the old password in that box. I have changed it in settings but don't know what to do next. Any suggestions ??

    Have you tried logging out of FB and then logging back in using the keyboard to manually enter your new password initially (don't use Autofill the first time)?

    After playing around a little I went into settings, Safari, and found the auto fill password function. I deleted the Facebook selection. That solved the problem of it filling in the old password BUT now the auto fill does not even appear when I bring up Facebook. How do I re-add Facebook to the list of apps that auto fill will on? I don't see an add option.

    Sign out and when signing in you'll get a pop up asking if you want to save.

    I signed into FB, then logged out. When I logged in again I did not get the pop-up box you mentioned. Do I need to change something in settings?

    Safari or Facebook app? Cause you should get a pop up if you sign in with a new password in safari.

    iCloud will only auto fill in safari. If you want to do it in other apps then you need a third party password manager. But the app will have to support this. Right now only a handful apps do.

    Edit: Since Facebook is integrated in iOS. I guess you might need to update the password in settings. Then it should auto fill if you're not signed in already.
