It strongly depends on the web site itself and it's sometimes hard to do. It also depends on what you like to do with it.

Normally credentials for a login are queried by a form. Thus you need to interact with the site using the DOM.

Here is an example showing how to find an input element using early binding, so you need to reference the Microsoft HTML Library:

Option Compare Database
Option Explicit

Private NavigateComplete As Boolean
Private WithEvents m_WebBrowser As SHDocVw.WebBrowser

Private Sub FillAndSubmitForm()

  Dim Element As MSHTML.IHTMLElement
  Dim Elements As MSHTML.IHTMLElementCollection
  Dim InputElement As MSHTML.IHTMLInputElement
  
  Set Elements = m_WebBrowser.Document.getElementsByTagName("input")
  If Not Elements Is Nothing Then
    For Each Element In Elements
      If (TypeOf Element Is MSHTML.IHTMLInputElement) And (Element.Name = "q") Then
        Set InputElement = Element
        InputElement.Value = "Access VBA IE DOM"
        InputElement.Form.submit
      End If
    Next Element
  End If

  Set InputElement = Nothing
  Set Element = Nothing
  Set Elements = Nothing
  
End Sub

Private Sub btnLoadPage_Click()

  NavigateComplete = False
  m_WebBrowser.Navigate2 "google.com"

End Sub

Private Sub ctlWebBrowser_DocumentComplete(ByVal pDisp As Object, URL As Variant)

  If Not NavigateComplete Then
    NavigateComplete = True
    FillAndSubmitForm
  End If

End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()

  Set m_WebBrowser = ctlWebBrowser.Object

End Sub

Private Sub m_WebBrowser_TitleChange(ByVal Text As String)

  Me.Caption = Text

End Sub

You need to examine your page with the IE dev tools (press F12). Then you can find the appropriate element names or ids.

Frequently you can pass the user name / password to the website when you enter the website's URL like this:
    "https://username:password@www.websiteaddress.com/
This is an internet protocol so it works on many websites.

If that does not work with the website you are interfacing with, you will need to interact with the website as ste5an explains.

Here is a demo database that will show you how to use the webbrowser control and automation to interact with websites:
