/Web APIs


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

The CredentialsContainer interface of the Credential Management API exposes methods to request credentials and notify the user agent when events such as successful sign in or sign out happen. This interface is accessible from Navigator.credentials.

Instance methods

CredentialsContainer.create() Secure context

Returns a Promise that resolves with a new Credential instance based on the provided options, or null if no Credential object can be created. In exceptional circumstances, the Promise may reject.

CredentialsContainer.get() Secure context

Returns a Promise that resolves with the Credential instance that matches the provided parameters.

CredentialsContainer.preventSilentAccess() Secure context

Sets a flag that specifies whether automatic log in is allowed for future visits to the current origin, then returns an empty Promise. For example, you might call this, after a user signs out of a website to ensure that they aren't automatically signed in on the next site visit. Earlier versions of the spec called this method requireUserMediation(). See Browser compatibility for support details.

CredentialsContainer.store() Secure context

Stores a set of credentials for a user, inside a provided Credential instance and returns that instance in a Promise.
