|The type of HTML input tag that we will discuss in this tutorial is the password input tag. The password input tag is very similar to the text input tag that we discussed in the last tutorial. You should read that tutorial before you continue. When you sign in to any private or protected area such as a customer account you encounter a form asking for your username and password. The input field for your username is created with the text input tag and the password input field is created with the password input tag. The most notable difference between these two types of input tags is the built-in security feature for the password input tag. When you type in your password you cannot see the characters of the password on the computer screen. This is because the password input tag tells the web browser to show a dot or an * in place of the characters that you type in. Give it a try below in the sample password input field.|
Below is the basic code for this type of input tag.
