    How do I disable an auto-population of an email confirm field in a form?

    Asked by mcross on May 01, 2015 at 04:20 PM

    I have added a "confirm email" property to my email request field in a form.  When I test complete the form, the second field (email confirmation) is auto-populating with what was typed into the first field.  Because this is a test to ensure that the first email entry is correct, by requiring a unique and separate entry, how would I disable this auto-population?

    Thank you!

    Thank you for contacting us.

    It is most likely that email fields are auto-populated on your side by Chrome Autofill option.

    In other words, when you type the email address manually it will not auto-populate the second email box. However, you can select the correct email address using Chrome Autofill option and it will populate the second email box too.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
