Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 (there is no such tag, and I have too little reputation here to create it).

On LG L5 when I type password I can see in the edit box the last character I typed. Better something than nothing.

However, with Ace 2 the story is worse -- all I see is sequence of dots, and I have real difficulties to type anything correctly.

Question -- how to show the password while typing?

  • I doubt that it's possible if the app does not have a "show password" checkbox.

I do not have your phone model on hand to try, but you can give this link a shot.

Generally, just go to Settings > Security > check Make passwords visible. This is true for my phone (HTC Desire, BCM 4.0.4).

Hope it works for you.

  • Thanks! In my case it was even worse, it was buried at the bottom, under settings for lock screen ;-) Aug 29, 2012 at 17:29
