Experimental

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

Secure context

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

The interface of the Credential Management API provides information about a username/password pair. In supporting browsers an instance of this class may be passed in the credential member of the init object for global fetch.

Note: This interface is restricted to top-level contexts and cannot be used from an <iframe>.
