Do not use Smartfill data fragments to store sensitive data, such as banking information, credit card information, or personal ID numbers.
Smartfill is a feature that automatically fills out portions of a form. This is accomplished by storing commonly used information, such as the user’s name and address, on the user’s computer. When the form is accessed via the Viewer or Webform Server the information is used to automatically complete sections of forms that require it. The first time a Smartfill form is opened, data from the form is saved to the user's computer. Thereafter, each time the Viewer or Webform Server encounters the same Smartfill data, the program will offer to automatically complete that section of the form for the user.
Unfortunately, while storing this information on the user’s computer allows convenient automatic completion of common form fields, it also means that other people who use the same computer may be able to access that information. For this reason, you should never use Smartfill to store sensitive information, such as credit card numbers.
