Instead of as this lets the browser (and the user) know that the contents of that field need to be secured.
The password won't appear on the screen as you type and most browsers also won't 'remember' the values entered in fields as they do with other form elements.
In some cases, such as on mobile devices, displaying the password may improve usability without compromising security.
After all it's only the browser display being obfuscated and not the data transfer.
Because the input type obscures the text typed, you should let the user confirm that they haven't made a mistake.
The simplest way to do this is to have the password entered twice, and then check that they are identical.
If not, the form submition is canceled, and the surfer prompted to re-enter a valid address.It is a very simple function which uses a regular expression pattern match to test if a email is of a correct format. This takes in a parameter of the email address and then runs a pattern match against the regular expression.If it doesn't find any matches then it will fail the validation and the function will return false, if the match returns true then the email will be of a correct format and the function will return true.If the purpose of registration is to confirm that the person exists, and that they have supplied a valid email address, then as part of the registration processe you a should either email them a random password or a confirmation token rather than letting them choose their own password and use it immediately.The code presented below would then be used for letting the user change their password.The regex for validating the correct email format in line 2 has been borrowed and edited slightly by adding the i flag so that the regex is case-insensitive.The if block in lines 3-6 checks to see if the email address in the first field passes the regex check by invoking the search() method on our email string value.A lot of websites now require registration, meaning that users need to be assigned a username and password.Here are some simple steps to make the process more secure.
