The HTMLHyperlinkElementUtils.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.


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


// Let's <a id="myAnchor" href=""> be in the document
var anchor = document.getElementByID("myAnchor");
var result = anchor.password; // Returns:'flabada'
