Check boxes, radio buttons, and toggle switches allow users to select options.
Use check boxes when users can select multiple items or options.
Use radio buttons when users can choose between more than two mutually exclusive options.
Use a toggle switch when users are choosing between two distinct options, such as Off and On. You can also use a toggle switch if you want to make a setting harder for users to change accidentally.
Best practices for check boxes and radio buttons
Best practice for toggle switches
Use terms that identify the state of the option, and not the action required to change the state. For example, "On" indicates the current state, while "Turn on" describes an action.
