Latest Alertbox from Jakob Neilsen is Stop Password Masking

Nielsen is completely right on this one, and I’ve thought so for a long time. The thing is, there’s nobody looking over your shoulder. There’s never anybody looking over your shoulder. And if there might be, well, put your hand over the screen or something.

But unfortunately it’s one of those idiocies that has become so ubiquitous that people have been trained into expecting it and will complain if you don’t do it.
