HalfMask – an Experiment in Password Masking

July 9th, 2009 by Dev Team in Uncategorized

HalfMask is an experimental approach to masking on password fields. Currently the standard shows bullets or asterisks to hide a user’s password completely as they type. Halfmask avoids this by obscuring the password with semi-visible random characters in the background. The intent is to only allow the user who typed the password to easily read it.
