Sam Dutton advises how to use cross-platform browser features to build sign-in forms that are secure, accessible and easy to use.

The tips of greatest interest to me were:

  • on using autocomplete="new-password" on registration forms and autocomplete="current-password" on sign-in forms to tap into browser password suggestion and password manager features;
  • on how best to provide “Show Password” functionality; and
  • on using aria-describedby when providing guidance on password rules.
