Google-chrome – Removing input background colour for Chrome autocomplete


On a form I'm working on, Chrome is auto-filling the email and password fields. This is fine, however, Chrome changes the background colour to a pale yellow colour.

The design I'm working on is using light text on a dark background, so this really messes up the look of the form – I have stark yellow boxes and near-invisible white text. Once the field is focused, the fields return to normal.

Is it possible to stop Chrome changing the colour of these fields?

Best Solution

You can change input box styles as well as text styles inside input box:

Here you can use any color e.g. white, #DDD, rgba(102, 163, 177, 0.45).

But transparent won't work here.

/* Change the white to any color */
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 0 30px white inset !important;

Additionally, you can use this to change the text color:

/*Change text in autofill textbox*/
    -webkit-text-fill-color: yellow !important;

Advice: Don't use an excessive blur radius in the hundreds or thousands. This has no benefit and might put processor load on weaker mobile devices. (Also true for actual, outside shadows). For a normal input box of 20px height, 30px ‘blur radius’ will perfectly cover it.
