A feature I really love on my BB Z10 is the little eye-symbol that enables you to view the password you are just entering (instead of some asterisks). I'd like something like that on my Jolla as well, as with on screen keyboards I sometimes press the wrong letter.

It would also have a better usability if the entered characters would stay readable for some seconds like they do on other platforms and then turn into dots or stars. This way one could check if the last 1-2 characters entered were correct.

I also like this option on my Windows 8.1 PC and Windows Phone. Adding it to Jolla would be very much appreciated!

If you add something like hardcodes.de suggests please make it optional. I always found it really annoying that Android would flash the last character I entered.

Great idea, and a standard on all other platforms.
