Always Enter the Correct Password with HideNoPasswords

If you’ve ever entered a password on your mobile device, you’ve surely noticed that password input fields normally hide the inputted characters by showing dots rather than the characters themselves. This is great to prevent casual snooping, but it also results in possible mistakes. Most of us also are well aware of how several consecutive mistakes may lead to account restrictions. So if you’re not in a public area, why not spare yourself of the inconveniences with a handy Xposed Framework module.

If you don’t care about privacy that much, you can use a module created by XDA Senior Member defim. This simple modification removes the dots and replaces them with actual characters. In doing so, it becomes much easier for you to enter the correct password without getting locked out of your account.

This modification, as is the case with every Xposed Framework module does, requires your device to be rooted and have Xposed Framework installed. You must also enable the module in the Xposed Installer.

We strongly recommend you to use this module wisely. Entering a fully visible password in a public place will undoubtedly lead to compromised data and security, so make sure to disable the module when you’re not in a safe place like your own bedroom. Otherwise, don’t complain to us when the funds in your bank account mysteriously vanish.

If your fingers are sloppy and you often make lots of typos when entering your passwords, you can now do something about it. Download the module from the HideNoPasswords thread.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
