Home Screen: PIN code should not be visible when entering RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • With my HTC S740 when I'm quickly entering my SIM PIN at start-up, the PIN is output in clear text on the phone.

    This is a security risk and contradicts the purpose of the PIN.

    I'd like to suggest that it becomes a policy with Windows Mobile that there is always a maximum of one single character output as clear text when entering text in a password type input text field. (The only readable character usually is the last one being typed in. That single readable character should even become an asterisk character after - preferably - one second delay time.)
