CredentialsContainer: preventSilentAccess() method

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

The preventSilentAccess() method of the CredentialsContainer interface sets a flag that specifies whether automatic log in is allowed for future visits to the current origin, then returns a Promise that resolves to undefined. For example, you might call this, after a user signs out of a website to ensure that they aren't automatically signed in on the next site visit. Mediation varies by origin, and is an added check point of browser stored credentials, informing a user of an account login status. This method is typically called after a user signs out of a website, ensuring this user's login information is not automatically passed on the next site visit.

Earlier versions of the spec called this method requireUserMediation(). The Browser compatibility section has support details.





Return value

A Promise that resolves to undefined.
