CURLOPT_DISALLOW_USERNAME_IN_URL(3) Library Functions Manual CURLOPT_DISALLOW_USERNAME_IN_URL(3)

CURLOPT_DISALLOW_USERNAME_IN_URL - disallow specifying username in the URL

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_DISALLOW_USERNAME_IN_URL,
                          long disallow);

A long parameter set to 1 tells the library to not allow URLs that include a username.

This is the equivalent to the CURLU_DISALLOW_USER flag for the curl_url_set(3) function.

0 (disabled) - usernames are allowed by default.

    curl_easy_perform(curl);
  }
}
