    I recently upgraded to version 2.0.2 and noticed that whenever you type in a password field where asterisks are, instead of just seeing pure asterisks

    **** for whatever character you type like pre-2.0 firmware

    You can actually see the letter you typed in like:

    Ex. Password: pass

    p

    *a

    **s

    ***s

    If you leave it alone for a while, and not type a letter, then the letter changes to a *.

    Is this normal? Does it happen to you all?

    Yes, it's normal.

    Just the default, it's handy if you forget where you were while typing the pass

    it is good purely because if you think that you ahve mistyped something, you can have a quick glance to see what you typed and so you know if you have made a mistake and can correct it rather thna having to wait for the app or websitre to check the password and see that it is wrong.
