If one can on a screen see the password in clear text, as 
we show now,there is no reason to not echo it during input of it.

How to repeat:
Run the installer

Instead, do not display configuration report--but do emphasize that it's there and should be moved to a secure location (will provide exact wording).

Response from Bitrock  regarding this issue, comments please.
Hi Keith, 

We hare re-visited this issue, we leave passwords hidden in passwords prompts by default.
This has been reverted in the builds provided on 10/31.
Please let us know if this is a major issue for you.

Best regards,
