Password masking

Heute morgen bin ich über diesen sehr interessanten Artikel gestolpert: Password masking, and the difference between usability and user experience.

Just like with Nielsen’s solution, having characters disappear one character at a time essentially clear-texts your password to anyone who happens to be present, leaving the only options to balance security and usability as the check-box options. Nielsen suggests that the checkbox be “hide”, but I disagree.

In dem Artikel werden einige sehr gute Punkte angebracht. Lohnt sich mal drüber zu lesen.
