When filling out fields and forms within Cliniko, some information may be saved within your browser using a feature called Autofill:

While some of this information may be your personal details, Autofill can also save patient data when this feature is enabled! 😱

To protect you and your patient's data, we recommend turning Autofill for forms OFF!

  3. Click on 'Addresses'

  4. Turn off Autofill forms.

Turn off Autofill in Safari

  1. On your Mac, open Safari.

  2. Go to Safari Preferences

  3. When the preferences box appears, click on the Autofill tab.
