Password Masking and Chroma-Hash

An experiment from Mattt Thompson in how to visualize the input of
masked password fields:

Some explanation taken from his blog:

Chroma-Hash displays an ambient color representation of the input as
it is being typed.

Use Case 1: Login Check
If your password normally is represented as “red, purple, orange”,
and after you’ve finished typing you see “pink, green, grey”, you’ll
know you mistyped it somewhere along the way.

Password Masking research

In light of Nielsen's new article seen here: along with other user

solutions to masking passwords on creation. Although I know the
simplest and best answer is probably not to mask the password at all,
it is highly doubtful that that answer will fly with our client.
