looks like Chrome has added a new feature in one of the last versions. This feature is far too intelligent (or even not).
I have an input field which I use for a date picker. If I now click on the input field, normally the date picker opens up. But since the last Chrom update also the credentials suggestions are popping up:
I have already tried autocomplete= “off”
but it doesn’t help.
At this point I want suggestions from you, how to get rid of the suggestions in Chrome
(or more specifically, it’s the auto-fill, not the offer to save, but you get the point)
Or why not change the input type to date since it’s a date field?
<input name="datePicker" type="date" class="calendarDatePicker hasDatePicker" id="datePicker">
Sorry i do not get what this site should help me.
This could help in this case, but I have some other „real“ input fields on my application which have the same problem and there I can’t change the type.
The point is that Chrome’s password/form autofiller is dumb and prompts you on pretty much every text field. The solution being to tell it to go away.
Could be a problem to tell GE that they should not use their recommended browser
Do they mandate you use the password manager feature?
What should it help when I disable this feature in my browser, while thousands of my app users have it on per default?
Because doing so in your browser is a decision that you’re making for yourself, rather than stripping a user’s ability to use the feature if they desire to?
This discussion drifts away…
Has anyone an idea how I can fix this?
Not sure its something to be “fixed”, but… Chrome doesnt respect autocomplete=“off”. They’ve been told, they’ve maintained their stance since 2015 or earlier that they will not implement autocomplete=“off” in Chromium.
I’ve seen (old) suggestions that giving the autocomplete attribute a nonsensical value might work, like autocomplete=“do-not-autocomplete-you-stupid-browser”, which apparently confuses the browser into ignoring it for completion terms, but i’m… not sure that’ll work against the password manager version of the feature.
Finally I found a solution which is good for me as I do not use forms.
Chrome is not offering autocomplete for items in forms with less than 3 items. So I wrap all my input fields with
form action = “javacript:void(0)”
I find that odd, as most forms that chrome WOULD be autocompleting would be a user/pass combo… but glad you found something that works.
