Is there a keyboard shortcut to reveal the password in the login screen?

On Windows you can press Alt+F8 (not very convenient choice though) instead of reaching out to mouse to click the strikethrough eye icon to unmask the password. Is there such shortcut in GNOME lock screen?

edited to reduce noise.

When you get to the Gnome Login, there is an eye on the far right of the prompt.

It looks like it is a two step action.


Then hit ENTER or the space bar in order to show the text.

Same thing to hide.

Actually I don’t know if there is a Windows like shortcut (if I’m not wrong, the password is showed only when you keep the keys pressed).

What do you mean by this? If I press the eye I see the text I am entering. Do you have a different experience ?


Yes, if I press the eye I see the password in clear text, but I have to use the mouse!
@deltastarshine’s question is: is there a keyboard shortcut to achieve the same thing? :slightly_smiling_face:
