Passwords can be viewed in Settings. Is there a way of stopping this?

Posted

Its a huge security concern. Anybody that has access to your computer can see your passwords. As very few of us have a different password for each place we login obviously if you have some you have more. The obvious solution is to have 2 levesl of passwords. One is those we don't care about, that aren't intrusive in our lives. The other is those that could damage us if in the hands of bad people. Maybe there's an extension for this that doesn't allow the extension company access to our passwords like passwords managers would? I just want something to make some passwords not visible by anyone, including me. Because I can't trust myself.  :)

I think I did that. If not, let me now. It says that the question has been answered, or is there something else I should do?
