To add icon inside the input element the <i> tag and <span> tag are used widely to add icons on the webpages. To add any icons on the webpages or in some specific area, it needs the fontawesome link inside the head tag. The fontawesome icon can be placed by using the fa prefix before the icon’s name.

fontawesome link: https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/4.7.0/css/font-awesome.min.css
Note: No downloading or installation is required.

Example-1:




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" 
          href=
    <style>
        .input-icons i {
            position: absolute;
        }
          
        .input-icons {
            width: 100%;
            margin-bottom: 10px;
        }
          
        .icon {
