Location: password

Obsolete
This feature is obsolete.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 password property of the Location interface is a USVString containing the password specified before the domain name.

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

Syntax

string = object.password;
object.password = string;

Examples

// 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.password; // Returns:'flabada'
