PasswordCredential

This article needs a technical review. How you can help.

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The interface of the 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.

Constructor

PasswordCredential.PasswordCredential()
Creates a new PasswordCredential object.

Properties
