Double Check Your Passwords in Windows RT

Here’s another Windows RT tip.

When you are typing in a password into a Metro style app it will be masked with dots as per usual. However, you might make the odd typo while getting used to the touch cover, type cover or on screen keyboards so if you want to quickly check what you’ve typed in without retyping the whole password then you’re in luck.

At the end of the password box is a little image that looks like an eye with an eyebrow over the top of it. All you need to do it hold your finger on it and your password will be revealed. Once you remove your finger, the password will be masked once again.

Quite a nifty little feature while getting used to Windows RT devices but make sure you don’t use it in the presence of prying eyes.
