Passing an email from one form to another

Recommended Posts


I have a form on my landing page that takes an email address and then on submit it redirects to a different page with a more in depth form but still has an email field in case users get to the bigger form first.

I wanted to know how to pass the email from the first form to the second one so that it is already filled in and users don't have to type it again?

You can do this with method=get

Email addresses are considered personally identifiable information (PII), so in the interests of protecting end user privacy, the HTML for the FORM tag should not use method=get. If GET is used, the email address will end up as part of the URL in the address bar and may be disclosed to third party services, such as ad tracking. POST is the preferred 'method' for submitting forms.
