It would be great if passwords could be hidden and replaced with '*' like in old versions. Showing them by default can lead mainly to leakage, if we are using password manager to not remember them then why even show them? Password on screen is just one photo away from someone else login to our account.

    Should be resolved in 2.7.9, you can go into the user's settings to enable password hiding.
