An App to Make Passwords Visible?

Is there an app to make passwords visible as yo type them on an uprooted Android device (or a programme that will do it in Windows)?

The only ones I can find require a rooted device.

Thank you, but I was thinking of non-browser apps, like PayPay, or Skype, or ebay for instance,

I can help you with showing passwords as you type them in a browser - if you tell me which browser is involved.

Thanks FE.

I use Chrome, so within the browser Password Manager does what I need. I am needing help with new stand alone apps so that I can see the password as I type it. some of them have the "show password" option of course, but many don't, and it can take me half a dozen attempts to get a new password in and accepted! (I also have tremendous trouble with captchas!).

Under Internet Explorer, there is an eye symbol The eye in Internet Explorer appears to the right of your password. By holding your main click on this button, it will reveal itself.
