HTMLAnchorElement.password

The HTMLAnchorElement.password property is a USVString containing the password specified before the domain name.

If it is set without first setting the username property, it silently fails.

// Setter
anchor.password = string;

Examples

// An <a id="myAnchor" href="https://anonymous:flabada@developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/HTMLAnchorElement"> is in the document

anchor.password; // returns 'flabada'
