Trigger full login actions

This option is going to help you automate the signup/login process on websites. When this option is enabled, the extension will find and auto-click the signup/log-in button when a user triggers the autofill action. This means fewer clicks by the user.


Enable dark mode

Hudu-extension is able to go lights off when this option is enabled, the extension is going to use a dark mode on the popup UI.


Set a Default view

You can set a specific view to be displayed when opening the popup, so that every time you open the extension, that view is going to be displayed first as default.

You can update this value on the Settings view >> Default view option.



Open the popup using a shortcut. There is no need to move your cursor over the Hudu icon and then click it.

Simply press the following shortcuts and the popup will open like magic.

  • For Mac Users: cmd + shift + i
  • For Windows Users: ctrl + shifti

On the Chrome extension, you can also change this shortcut by typing: chrome://extensions/shortcuts into your Chrome browser.
