In the Logins and Passwords settings, you used to be able to "show" at the logins and now there is only an option to copy. This"show" option helped if I was getting my password from the desktop for another device, or setting up a device. Please bring this option back.

I would like to be able to take a short look at the pw's without copying and pasting them into some random page to see what they are. That seems a lot less secure.

Thanks

In the event that the passwords information is lost, you should record all information in a separate text file somewhere else on your hard drive, or written down. You can easily copy and paste if you need to do so. If you are concerned about someone else looking at that file, you can compress it using a password.
