    Sir…sounds Intresting…still not sure if it is a good idea (too subjective)…We have been using passwords as a aunthicating mechanism for all these years…Its more of a psychlogical ( to get a secured feeling)…I am sure we all have few set of passwords for as many as 50/logins rt?…This might/may be a soultion for a website/portal but has “Mr Jacob Neilson” thought about other systems like Bank ATM's especially in India…any thoughts?

  2. @dasaribalaji, I totally agree with u. Nielson hasn't put thoughts on any of the regional or physiological use cases. But generally speaking, unmasking password fields may not be implemented for high security access. I am thinking about a totally different access pattern for such situations, which I intend to document in the blog soon.
