Is it possible to "show" our password during or after we type it in?
I do not believe that there is a facility to show a password as you type as there is on some websites. A work around would be to type your password in a word processor or similar and then copy and paste it into FamilySearch. That way you would know what you have typed.
I would humbly suggest, that for the REASON of PRIVACY, alone, 'FamilySearch', would NOT want, to have such a feature/function/facility, in 'FamilySearch'; especially, for those Users/Patrons utilizing Computers in "Public" Places (eg "Public" Libraries).
Such would be TOO Much of a "Security" risk, on the ground of "Privacy".
On the other hand ...
I just used my "Mobile" Phone; where, my "Mobile" Phone has (Specific) "Setting" that are "Personalised" ...
I tried both, the
(1) "Mobile" Application version; and,
(2) a "Browser" version
And, in both, the aforementioned cases, EACH of the "Characters" of the "Password", appeared 'Momentarily'; as, I 'Typed"; but, the "Resulting" password, DID NOT, appear on the screen.
Again, I would suggest, a "Security" feature/function/facility, purposefully included, by 'FamilySearch'.
Just my thoughts.
Regarding we received your question about showing your password.
FamilySearch is very careful in protecting the privacy of individuals. Matter if fact : Recovering a forgotten username or resetting a forgotten password to sign into FamilySearch.org FamilySearch does not keep a record of patron’s passwords due to privacy security. (Passwords must be at least 8 characters with at least one letter and one number.) .
Certain browsers will remember you user name and password.
We wish you much success using this wonderful website.
if you really want to see your password that you have typed
first type it into a text editor / word processor
and make sure it is typed in correctly
then you can select copy and paste to the password field of FS - - using CTRL-C (copy) and CTRL-V (paste)
just make sure that you dont inadvertantly copy and paste any preceding or trailing blank space
the most common issue with passwords when you feel you are sure that you typed it in correctly - is that your CAPS LOCK may be on and needs turning off
