I'm a Service Missionary at the Layton Family Search Center. One small problem that I have patrons report almost without fail each time I work at the center, is that they want to be able to see the password that they've typed in on the sign-in page. Why doesn't Family Search have the "eye" icon which is commonly used on other sign in pages throughout the web, to help people verify/correct their password?

Why are the engineers showing no empathy here? I'm sure I am going to find a "Show password" / "Eye" option very useful in the near future, as lately I seem to be frequently mistyping my (hidden) password.
This idea is not new, so would the engineers please understand how many (particularly older) users experience signing-in problems and implement the option suggested?0
I don't disagree that this would be a good addition, but in the meantime, there are workarounds. The easiest, requiring no downloads or installations or particular computer savvy, is to copy-and-paste from/to a text editor, such as Notepad. (Or in a pinch, from/to the account/login name field, or the browser's address bar, or any other cleartext field.)0
I wouldn't say the engineers aren't empathetic. I chatted with our product manager today and this function has been considered and is already on their roadmap. I can't speak to timing but it is in the plan!
