In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to remove a focus blue border around input and textarea fields using CSS.

Normally, if we click on html input or textarea fields we can see its border is highlighted with blue color because the browser applies its default styling to show the active field.

Removing the focus

We can remove the focus border by setting the css property outline to none

<input placeholder="name" type="text" />
<textarea placeholder="Enter your feedback"></textarea>
input:focus,textarea:focus{
 outline: none;
}

This above example shows you how to remove the focus border for an input and textarea fields.

If we want to remove the focus on every element we can do it like this.

*:focus{
 outline: none;
}
