Module: Password Field
What does it do?
The Password Field module allows developers to create fields that store passwords. By default, the fields are encrypted and not displayed on the website.
This module can be really helpful when wanting to provide additional security beyond what a text field provides. Also, this could fit in nicely with sites using content restriction. For example, one could create a password field for a specific content type such as an image gallery, restricting only to authenticated users with the password.
