Bitbucket 7.21.5 AutoComplete Attribute Not Disabled for Password in Form Based Authentication

Hello,

Bitbucket 7.21.5 AutoComplete Attribute Not Disabled for Password in Form Based Authentication

 

Solution

Contact the vendor to have the AutoComplete attribute disabled for the password field in all forms. The AutoComplete attribute should also be disabled for the user ID field. Developers can add the following attribute to the form or input element: autocomplete="off" This attribute prevents the browser from prompting the user to save the populated form values for later reuse. Most browsers no longer honor autocomplete="off" for password input fields. These browsers include Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, IE, Opera However, there is still an ability to turn off autocomplete through the browser and that is recommended for a shared computing environment. Since the ability to turn autocomplete off for password inputs fields is controlled by the user it is highly recommended for application to enforce strong password rules.

 

Someone can suggest how to solve this problem.
