Thank you for your prompt reply to my idea, which is much appreciated.
I have given this suggestion a lot of thought over several months. When I log into my Norton account, I have a fairly simple password. However, the ID Safe requires a much longer and more varied password and therefore there is much more likelihood of my making one or more errors.
Regarding an unauthorized person attempting to enter my password, I don't understand how my suggestion would benefit his efforts, other than allow him to see what he had entered, and like me, correct any errors he has entered by mistake.
I am only suggesting that one can see the characters entered, but not change them in any way whilst viewing them. Any required changes would still have to be made by the operator but the advantage would be that I can see my own errors and manually correct them.
Can you suggest any other ways that my suggestion would help a would-be thief?
