HTMLAreaElement.password

The HTMLAreaElement.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.

Syntax

// Getter
string = area.password;
// Setter
area.password = string;

Examples

// An <area id="myArea" href="https://anonymous:flabada@developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/HTMLAreaElement"> is in the document
const area = document.getElementByID("myArea");
area.password; // returns 'flabada'
