How can I register on a new website that I'm interested in without having to retype all my personal details each time?

There are several ways of avoiding having to retype your personal details when registering on a new website.

First there are initiatives created by major internet companies: for example, if you use Google's email service, your email address and password can be used to sign in to all of Google's applications and services.

Another option: utility programs that automatically fill in forms or data sheets. These utilities, such as RoboForm and Password Manager, remember the username-password combination in secure form the first time you login to a site and then automatically supply it when you return. They thus help avoid endless registration processes. As a result, one can use high-strength passwords, as they are entered automatically on subsequent visits.
