The password eye is a new feature in Internet Explorer 10 (IE10). If you click on the password eye, what you have typed will show up to enable you to check the typing of your password. The password will only show up while
the mouse button is pressed - as soon as you release the button your typing will disappear.
Some security considerations when using the password eye:
Be wary of anyone looking over your shoulder.
Avoid using it if your computer is being accessed remotely (by for example a tech support person) - even if it’s a trustworthy company. In fact, I would avoid typing any password into a IE10 box that has a password eye during a remote access session.
Do not leave your computer unattended with the password box filled in (but not submitted).
