As my favorite tool to organize and enter sweepstakes is RoboForm, and I still use it every day, I thought it would be prudent to update and reshare this Q&A.

Hi Carolyn,

I’m reading your book right now, and it is great. I have just one question, though. I’m using Chrome Autofill, and when I fill in the fields, they turn yellow. Does that happen when you use RoboForm? And does that mean my entry will get disqualified?

Thank you for your input,


Hi Eddie,

Firstly, you will not be disqualified from using the Autofill feature (aka Auto-Complete) of any browser or RoboForm. It is not considered a robotic entry. Sponsors prefer it because it ensures you won’t make a typo, which could potentially disqualify you if they can’t contact you and your name is selected as a potential winner.

Sometimes the form fields change color, and sometimes they don’t. It doesn’t matter. What matters is; are the entry fields filled out correctly. Are you giving the contest sponsor the correct information to enter the giveaway? Always scan the entire page, no matter what method you are using to fill out the forms, to ensure the data is correct.

The disadvantage to using Autofill, as appose to RoboForm, is that you can’t use Autofill to organize your sweepstakes or save more complicated entry forms. It’s my secret to winning.

Another advantage to using RoboForm Everywhere is that I sync it to my phone so I can sweepstakes on the go, as I have all my giveaway links and entry form details with me.



RoboForm 101

To learn how I use RoboForm to organize sweepstakes and fill out entry forms, along with finding local giveaways, take my RoboForm 101 workshop. It is a live, interactive class allowing you to ask questions, and we master each step of the process.

NOTE: In the past, RoboForm didn’t work as well on Apple products; however, as reported to me by other sweepers using Macs, they are currently using it successfully, so clearly, RoboForm has improved the software integration. Let me know if you experience otherwise.

Do you use a tool to fill out online forms? If so, which one?
