Location: username


This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

The username property of the Location interface is a USVString containing the username specified before the domain name.


string = object.username;
object.username = string;


// Let's <a id="myAnchor" href="https://anonymous:flabada@developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Location.username"> be in the document
var anchor = document.getElementByID("myAnchor");
var result = anchor.username; // Returns:'anonymous'
