EDGE bug: autocomplete="off" still displays previously entered information.

EDGE bug - when autocomplete is set to off, information that has been entered is not displayed.
edge recently stopped following this rule, using "autocomplete="off"" still shows the previous information, only the new-password attribute will make it disappear.
The input boxes of the mobile version of the website all display a clumsy list of previously entered information, which directly blocks the input method!

These sites are normal in chrome browser. But chrome browser autocomplete is set to off new-password attribute still shows the information that has been entered

    That's by design in chromium browsers. You can check this issue and it has been marked as WontFix. I think we can't change the situation.

    If you want to prevent autofilling in your own site, I think you can only use autocomplete="new-password". If you're not satisfied with Baidu search bar autocomplete feature, I think you can provide feedback to the site to see if they'll improve the user experience.


    I found another workaround. When I add another input field just behind the autocomplete="off" field, autocomplete="off" will work in Edge. You can put a hidden input behind it. You can refer to the sample code below, it works in both Edge and Chrome:

    <form action="/action_page.php">  
      First name: <input type="text" name="fname" autocomplete="off"><input type="text" name="dummy" style="display:none"><br>  
      Last name: <input type="text" name="lname" autocomplete="on"><br>  
      <input type="submit">  

    For the autocomplete="off" not working in Edge issue, you can also provide feedback to Edge team by pressing Alt+Shift+I in Edge. The Edge team will check the feedbacks and improve the product continuously. Thanks for your understading.
