Links that don’t go anywhere should be buttons
You use an anchor if you want to create an interactive element in the your site or app that takes you to another web resource. You do not use an anchor element to trigger scripting functionality. That’s what the button element is for.

Tips for making interactive elements accessible on mobile devices
WCAG was updated to version 2.1, which includes a whole new section on guidelines for mobile accessibility.
