When I enter to my login page the login form is filled automatically without even typing anything, this is pseudo-code

    <div class="form-group">
        <label for="email" class="required"><?php echo $this->__('Email Address') ?> <em>*</em></label>
        <input type="text" name="login[username]" value="<?php echo $this->escapeHtml($this->getUsername()) ?>" id="email" class="input-text required-entry validate-email" title="<?php echo $this->__('Email Address') ?>" />
    <div class="form-group">
        <label for="pass" class="required"><?php echo $this->__('Password') ?> <em>*</em></label>
        <input type="password" name="login[password]" class="input-text required-entry validate-password" id="pass" title="<?php echo $this->__('Password') ?>" />

How can I prevent this autofill, I have tested with jquery disable autocomplete plugin and it does not work

Thanks in advance

  • add autocomplete="off" attribute on the inputs.

  • You may need to use autocomplete="new-password" for the password field since a log of browsers ignore off on password fields. developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Security/…

1 Answer 1

<form name="form1" id="form1" method="post" 
  autocomplete="off" action="http://www.example.com/form.cgi">

This will work in Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, the downside is that it is not XHTML standard.
