Exactly. I make sure that nobody is around me when I'm typing my pw on ipad. In addition, I have to cautiously look around to see if there are any cameras on the ceiling pointing at my device. Too much extra effort to protect my pw, making the experience of logging in personal site on a public place super uncomfortable.
To the people who enjoy checking the letters of pw they type into the devices, my experience is that if you really use your pw a lot, your fingers remember the moves on the keyboard and a lot of time you don't even have to think. That is why I can type my pw very quickly and accurately w/t looking up the site and checks my pw, and that is also why I dislike the function of showing my password letter by letter.
It would be great if iPad can have the options for the users to choose either or not to show the pw while typing.
Is there any update or fix to this issue, I am not sure how apple can miss such an important security feature.
This is definitely an issue for us as were hoping to use them for Board presentations but after having to enter the passcode and everyone knowing it, unless you remember to disconnect from Apple TV device. One thing we're going to try is to lengthen the time before requiring the passcode to be re-entered. Not ideal, as this opens the door a bit for someone to grab it quickly and get in but it's something. Hopefully an solution/option will become available in the near future.
