     var isChrome = /Chrome/.test(navigator.userAgent) && /Google Inc/.test(navigator.vendor);
    if (isChrome) {
        $("#UserPassword").attr("type", 'text');
        $("#UserPassword").attr("style", "-webkit-text-security:disc;");
    else {
        $("#UserPassword").attr("type", 'password');

but, I faced, some issue due to the address fill suggestion. it shows the already typed values in the suggestion. how to prevent show the suggestion in field or how prevent Google Chrome password manager to save the password from my site.

  • I am asked about autofill in field. i required for avoid show suggestion in that fields.

    Now, i got one solution for avoid this scenario.

    In the Suggestion show based on the field name.

    function formsubmit(e){
     <form action="/account/login" id="loginform" >
        <input type="text" name="123123124343_Password" id="userpassword"></input>
        <input type="submit" onclick="formsubmit()" value="Login"></input>

    so,i was set the dynamic name for the field with unique id. in form submit event, i changed the field name as i required.

    Now, the suggestion box is not appeared in that field
