Question How to allow suggestions in password input

Hi,
I downloaded a keyboard app with the idea that I want to be able to add shortcuts to input my passwords by entering a keyword like "pw' or "pw2". I use fairly long passwords and this feature would be of great use.

My problem is that when selecting the input box for a password, the suggestions don't come up above the keyboard. It works fine in a regular input box. Like I use "eml" to enter my email address. I assume this is a security feature and I understand this is not a very secure way to enter passwords.

My question is, is there any way to override this ? I did a google search and what comes up is way out of my level of understanding. It looks to me like programming teminology like registry edits or something ? Is there a simple answer to this ? Or is there an app that would enter macros that I could use ?

Thanks for any help. Mark

No, I don't think you can override this behaviour "easily" but you can install a form filler: LastPass - Password Manager, Form Filler, Password Management

Thanks, I use Lastpass on my home computer and laptop and I love it, but I didn't care for the android version. I wouldn't even mind paying for it, but it just didn't work right on my phone for me.
Thanks for the reply
