how to avoid the default value in password field…

You can assign an empty value like


or use

$model->unsetAttributes() -

You are probably using an existing model.

So, if you are creating a new entry, use a new model, too.

If you are updating it and don’t want to show the current password, you can clean the password value in the controller. Note: You may have to handle the case when the user doesn’t update the password. Better yet: remove the password fields and have an action and view just for changing passwords.
