Secure context

This feature is available only in secure contexts (HTTPS), in some or all supporting browsers.

The Credential interface of the Credential Management API provides information about an entity (usually a user) as a prerequisite to a trust decision.

Credential objects may be of 3 different types:

Properties Read only
Returns a DOMString containing the credential's identifier. This might be any one of a GUID, username, or email address.
Credential.type Read only
Returns a DOMString containing the credential's type. Valid values are password, federated and public-key. (For PasswordCredential, FederatedCredential and PublicKeyCredential)

Event handlers





let pwdCredential = new PasswordCredential({
  id: "example-username", // Username/ID
  name: "John Doe", // Display name
  password: "correct horse battery staple" // Password

console.assert(pwdCredential.type === "password");
