    How in the heck can I show the password for various apps? I have a real problem using the darn small keypad on my S5 and often hit the wrong key and this is a real problem if you are entering a password. Is there a setting or app that I can use that will show me the PW after I have entered it. Just seeing the little popup as I press a key is not enough for me especially if I need to enter the same character more than once in succession. I need to see the entire PW after I have entered it.

    I've searched for apps in the play store and either I'm looking for the wrong thing or none exist.

    That's normally something the app developer adds to the app - a checkbox to allow you to show the password. (There are loads of examples of the code on the web, so no developer can say that it's too difficult to do - it's cut and paste.) But I don't know of a "decode the obscured textbox) app that you can use to show the password in an app that doesn't have the function. (Using a password manager makes it easier - once you have that account in the manager, just copy the password and paste it into the app.)

    You and me both....

    My bank app is just about impossible for me to sign into w/o triggering the dreaded "your account has been locked" message.

    Once that happens, my debit card is locked from further use, and if that happens on the night before a 4 day holiday weekend, I am screwed. (in fact it did happen once)

    this is the reason that I will not use the bank mobile apps unless I am setting down at my office desk where I can see what is happening.... AND if that message gets triggered, I have to login via my PC browser and reset the password to a new one, after going through 20 questions to verify my credentials with the bank.
