Password

Learn how to use the string field password.

The input field type Password allows to store a string as plain text, hash, or in encrypted form. Therefore, it is particularly useful for storing passwords.

Note, that a single property configured as password will appear as two text fields in the document editor - one field for entering the password, and a second field for repeating it. You can only save the document, if you enter exactly the same character sequence into both fields. As you may know from password input fields in other programs, it will not be possible to recognize individual characters within the password field.
