#25630 closed enhancement (duplicate)

WordPress setup input field type password instead of text

When setting up a new WordPress installation the input field type for password is 'text' instead of 'password'.
This is A) sloppy and B) insecure because when your browser remembers previous data you have entered in this form, other people could easily find out your MySQL password!

  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed

To be honest, I'm not sure why this fields isn't set to autocomplete=off.

That said, #3534. There are very legitimate UX reasons for keeping it a text field.

To be honest; why don't you implement your suggestion?
Because I disagree with the so called legitimate UX reasons.

Kind regards, Daniel
