The Codex page, /Customizing the Login Form, needs to be updated to include the /login form password visibility button and the language switcher.

To assist, the following can be added to the updated page for the benefit of all WordPress users:

Code to Disable the Password Visibility Button:

function remove_wp_hide_pw_button() {

	if ((document.addEventListener != null) && (document.querySelector != null)) {
    document.addEventListener( 'DOMContentLoaded', function() {
        var b = document.querySelector('button.wp-hide-pw');
        if (b != null) b.remove();

add_action('login_footer', 'remove_wp_hide_pw_button');

Filter to Disable the Language Switcher:

add_filter( 'login_display_language_dropdown', '__return_false' );


(1) Above codes can be implemented using the plugin, /Code Snippets.
(2) Above codes have been thoroughly tested and work as intended.
(3) No security issues detected when using the above codes.

Thank you!
