I would appreciate the option to see my password. Most places have "hide" or "show" to ascertain the correctness of what was entered. Could FamilySearch offer the same option?
Workaround: type your password in your favorite text editor, then copy and paste into the password field.
Other workaround: most browsers nowadays can save logins and passwords for you. Take yours up on the offer.0

In spite of the workarounds, I agree with this suggestion. Many (if not most) of the websites I use have a "Show password" option, so why not FamilySearch? Surely not that difficult to implement and it really would be a help to many users who (like me!) don't have steady hands and often hit an adjacent key in error!1
Yes, PLEASE! -- And the new patrons coming into our center who aren't expert typists would really appreciate it.
And The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints login page (https://id.churchofjesuschrist.org/) has an eyeball button on the right end of the password box. So why can't FamilySearch?1
A confusing post and the responses to it were deleted so as to not confuse other users who read this thread.1
It is well-accepted practice to offer the ability to show or hide a written password. Why not so with FamilySearch?0
First thank you for all you do!
I'm hoping/wondering if we could have the same
"Show" password action found on the church website, please.
A LOT of times, it would truly be useful when assisting a patron at our center and beyond.

Please add an "eye" option to see the Password as you are typing it in.
This would help so many guests as well as missionaries who are trying to help the guests on the phone.0
If FS compiled a list of "frequently requested features", this would be very near the top (along with "search among my relatives only" and "dark mode").
There are workarounds; the one that doesn't require anything that you don't already have is to type the password in your favorite text editor, then copy and paste into the password field. This works even if you're using a shared computer, since all devices come with some sort of text editor. If you're on a private device, then an alternative is to take your browser up on its offer to save your login/password.1
Thanks, but that is not a very helpful option for 80+ individuals who are already struggling to just type something.0
Please know that I have passed this idea on.1
