How to hide password value in inspect using React and Formik

Hello Developers 🀩🀩

Have you ever logged in to Facebook?
Have you ever inspected the Facebook login page?
If not go to Facebook and try inspecting it, you will find the value of the password filed is not showing.

We will replicate that behavior using React and Formik.

Creating Project

npx create-react-app my-app
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

After project setup, install formik.

npm install formik --save
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Basic setup

Setup a basic template for email and password input with submit button.

import { useFormik } from "formik";

function App() {
    return (
        <form>
            <input name="email" type="email" placeholder="email" />
            <input 
                name="password"
                type="password"
                placeholder="password"
            />
            <button type="submit">Submit</button>
        </form>
    );
}

export default App;
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Implementing Formik

import { useFormik } from "formik";

function App() {
    const handleSubmit = (values) => {
        console.log(values);
    };

    const formik = useFormik({
        initialValues: {
            email: "",
            password: "",
        },
    });

    return (
        <form
            onSubmit={(e) => {
                e.preventDefault();
                handleSubmit(formik.values);
            }}
        >
            <input
                name="email"
                type="email"
                placeholder="email"
                {...formik.getFieldProps("email")}
            />
            <input
                name="password"
                type="password"
                placeholder="password"
                onChange={formik.handleChange}
                onBlur={formik.handleBlur}
            />
            <button type="submit">Submit</button>
        </form>
    );
}

export default App;
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now check the value in Inspect.
