I'm getting a smiley type logo in my password boxes on several sites, when I have typed my password and click on the logo, my password is revealed. How can I stop this happening?
I would recommend running the Latest Getsusp. Please enter your Email Address under "Preferences" before scanning. I would then run Malwarebytes (Free) Do not try the (Free trial offer/or Activate) the Free Version will suffice. You might even follow up with running AdwCleaner as well.
All the Best,
Thanks, I found the answer. Apparently, its a new Windows 10 thing. Which allows you to check that you've typed in the correct password???? Don't check it while in remote assistance though!!! Lol Thanks for your speedy response and assistance with this though.
Oops! Sorry. This is what I should have written.
The password eye is a new feature in Internet Explorer 10 (IE10). If you click on the password eye, what you have typed will show up to enable you to check the typing of your password. The password will only show up while the mouse button is pressed - as soon as you release the button your typing will disappear.
Some security considerations when using the password eye:
Ah now I understand. OK. What operating system are you using (and service pack if applicable)? The reason I ask is that IE10 should not be installed if you have Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8 or 8.1, all of those you should upgrade IE to IE11 asap for security reasons. This applies even if you use another browser.
Vista SP1 support from Microsoft ended in July 2011. Vista SP2 support ended April 2012.
So, your OS has not been getting security updates for a few years now.
Time to upgrade to SP2 and apply all the patches probably...
