Simplify sign in on mobile device

Postby benrohrer » Mon Jul 09, 2018 10:07 am

One thing that I have noticed over the past few years when I try to login using my iPhone is in the User ID box it automatically has the shift on so that the first letter I type is a capital letter. With most user name is not having a capital letter as the first letter it would be helpful to not have the shift come on automatically at the beginning of that login. I’d be interested to know if there was something that I could do on my end to not have that shift come on at the beginning of the login.

Fortunately, during login, the username is case insensitive. So it doesn't matter.

Thanks!! For some reason it seemed like I had a problem logging in when my username had any capitalized letters.

I would also suggest sending feedback using the feedback link at the bottom of LDS.org. It is annoying when it autocapitalizes the first letter, if your username is normally written with a lowercase letter.

Is that something that lds.org has control of? I'd think that's a feature of the phone's OS.

I thought that at first, until I realized that other sites requiring my sign in do not turn on caps lock.

Or rather, I suspect that the phone OS has it on by default, but the other apps are smart enough to turn it off.

It's the default behavior, but can be disabled by adding autocapitalize="none" to the field in HTML. Both iOS and Android support the HTML autocapitalize attribute.
