  • You could develop a pre-call out that uses an encryption algorithm to encrypt the data and some javascript on the form load to mask the password. Obviously you would have to decrypt the data before using it for authentication.

  • You could do this a few ways, however this isn't a security measure because the data would be on the form after a save and display in clear text through View Source.  It will also be available in Advanced Find, exports, and Reports.
