public class PasswordEntry : Widget, Accessible, Buildable, ConstraintTarget, Editable

PasswordEntry is entry that has been tailored for entering secrets.

It does not show its contents in clear text, does not allow to copy it to the clipboard, and it shows a warning when Caps Lock is engaged. If the underlying platform allows it, GtkPasswordEntry will also place the text in a non-pageable memory area, to avoid it being written out to disk by the operating system.

Optionally, it can offer a way to reveal the contents in clear text.

GtkPasswordEntry provides only minimal API and should be used with the Editable API.
