Turn Off Autocomplete for Input

The autocomplete attribute specifies whether or not an input field should have autocomplete enabled.

Autocomplete allows the browser to predict the value from locally saved history/cache. When a user starts to type in a field, the browser should display options to fill in the field, based on earlier typed values.

Note: The autocomplete attribute works with the following <input> types: text, search, url, tel, email, password, datepickers, range, and color.

example usage:

<input name="q" autocomplete="off" />
