HTML input type email Tutorial

In this section, we will learn what the <input type = “email”> element is and how to use it.

What is input type email in HTML?

The <input type = “email”> element is used to create a field in a document where people can enter an email address.

This field automatically checks the input value against the pattern of an email; if the input value didn’t match the pattern of an email, browsers display a message that the email is not correct. If the email field is in a form and we put a wrong email, the form won’t submit!

(Sometimes only the input field is highlighted with red color to signal the input value is not correct).
