The HTML autocomplete Attribute is used to specify whether the input field has autocompleted would be on or off. When the autocomplete attribute is set to on the browser will automatically complete the values based on which the user entered before. It works with many input fields such as text, search, URL, email, password, date pickers, range, and color.

Syntax:

<element autocomplete="on | off"> 

Attribute Values:

  • on: It has a default value. It specifies that autocomplete is enabled.
  • off: It specifies that the autocomplete is disabled.

Example: In this example, we use autocomplete attribute value as off in the form.
