Hey Pragati, authentication popups can be handled in 3 different ways:

  1. By passing user credentials in URL: Append your username and password with the URL. Syntax is: http://Username:Password@SiteURL; For eg:
    • String URL = "http://" + abha_r + ":" + myPassword + "@" + www.prime.amazon.com;
      driver.get(URL);
      Alert alert = driver.switchTo().alert();
      alert.accept();
  2. By using AutoIT: Use AutoIT script to send username and password. For eg:

    • public static void login(String email, String password) throws Exception{
      
      driver.get(URL);
      WinWaitActivate("Authentication Required","")
      Send("abha_r{TAB}myPassword{ENTER}")
      
      Runtime.getRuntime().exec("C:\\Download\\AutoItFiles\\ExecutableFiles\\FirefoxBrowser.exe");
      driver.findElement
      
      loginpage.setEmail(email);
      loginpage.setPassword(password);
      loginpage.clickOnLogin();
      }
       
  3. By using Alerts in Selenium: We can use following lines of code to handle popup window using Alerts. For eg:

    • driver.switchTo().alert();
      
      //Selenium-WebDriver Java Code for entering Username & Password as below:
      
      driver.findElement(By.id("userID")).sendKeys("userName");
      driver.findElement(By.id("password")).sendKeys("myPassword");
      driver.switchTo().alert().accept();
      driver.switchTo().defaultContent();

Show us that this works.  AutoIt claims that they do not interact with browser controls (Authentication Required) is a firefox dialog.  ?
What's your query though?
Hi, how can i simply ignore this pop up without entering credentials and move to next page? Help me on this
Hey have you tried @Abha's solution?
