    Keystroke Hide/Reveal for Passwords


    Not sure how to explain this but..

    You know when you type your password and input one character that shows,
    then you input another one and the previous one hides and the new one shows?
    I've noticed the majority of sites do this but there's also one's that hide your password
    completely and don't reveal anything.

    I'm wondering if there's an app or function in Windows that allows this.

    A feature of the web site design, not a Windows function.

    Well that makes sense but is there something I could apply to Windows to bypass this?

    Wouldn't do what you want, but you could use an online password manager, like LastPass, that has a popup window with the user name and the password (hidden) for the web site you're trying to access. Click, and it inserts those options.


    Having a visible password defeats the intended security level.

    Looking over my post it wasn't really clear what I wanted, sorry bout that.
    I want to hide the password completely while typing and not reveal anything.

    Lastpass, first time around ran into multiple issues.
    Been seeing a lot of positive things about it lately tho so I might give it another go.
    Thank you
