The Low Down

The hidden input type is used to maintain hidden values that are not intended to be manipulated by your users.

  • One of the original input types, hidden has been supported by all browsers since forever.
  • While hidden from the user, the name and value get sent with form submission.
  • The hidden input does not go thru constraint validation.
