Note:
To make autocomplete feature to work
1. Turn ON the autocomplete feature for form, in your browser.
2. Make sure to name all your input fields. Without naming, autocomplete feature may not work.
3. If not specified, tags will inherit autocomplete feature from its parent tag. If not turned OFF, browser will have autocomplete turned ON by default, once it is enabled in browser settings.

autocomplete=”off”
Turn off autocomplete to password fields, debit card, credit card, account number fields.
