Making password managers play ball with your login form

Password managers are essential to secure internet usage, so making our login fields work with them is extremely important. This will mostly happen automatically if you follow best practices. The autocomplete attribute can make it easier for password managers to recognise your fields. Using hidden attributes can make password managers fail altogether. This can be hacked around, but I do not recommend doing so, unless absolutely necessary.
