How to Fix the Problem

Use autocomplete attribute according to HTML 5.2 specification.

The Algorithm, in Simple Terms

The engine checks autocomplete attributes for a correct value according to HTML 5.2 specification.

Why Is it Important?

The autocomplete attribute allows the browser to do a pattern match against a list of values locally stored with the browser, and supplies the appropriate corresponding value when the input is programmatically tagged. This reduces typing and reliance on memory because it uses stored values to fill in the fields.
