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!).

Thank you. I have little problem with browsers, it's stand alonevapps I need help with.

There are lots of apps available for this. I think I tried ShowPassword before.

Unfortunately Show Password, like all the others requires a rooted device.
