«Backend Login Autocomplete» extension makes the standard Magento 2 backend login form more useful in modern browsers (like Google Chrome).
The source is on GitHub: https://github.com/mage2pro/backend-login-autocomplete

The default Magento 2 backend login form behaviour in Google Chrome is very odd and is shown below:

As you can see, the behaviour is inconsistent: the «Username» field is not autocompleted, but the «Password» field is autocompleted (sometimes with a wrong value).

The «Backend Login Autocomplete» extension makes the backend login form behaviour more consistent and configurable.
It adds an option to enable or disable autocomplete for the backend login form:

Demo video:

  • Enable autocomplete if you trust the other users of your browser.
  • Disable autocomplete in the opposite case.

How to install

composer require mage2pro/backend-login-autocomplete:*
bin/magento setup:upgrade
rm -rf pub/static/* && bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy en_US <additional locales, e.g.: de_DE>
rm -rf var/di var/generation generated/code && bin/magento setup:di:compile

If you have some problems while executing these commands, then check the detailed instruction.
