Password screen shadow

There was an update about a year ago that made it so when you are unlocking your phone, when you press the number it leaves a little shadow. Is there anyway to turn that feature off, cause it's pretty easy to see what I'm typing. Thanks

Re: Password screen shadow

Hey there!

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

The feature you are looking for is unavailable. I tried on the devices we have here and didn't find a setting to turn that feature off.

Re: Password screen shadow

Hey, 

@Samsung_VPqvwNA

If you haven't already done so open biometrics and security/ other security settings and turn off make passwords visible. It shows password characters briefly as you type them. On my phone it does this but then replaces each character with a small white dot.

I'm thinking if it doesn't show the password characters at all then there shouldn't be any password characters to leave behind as a ghost image.

I also have set mine to confirm pin without tapping ok. This way it unlocks and loads the homscreen automatically as soon as I type in the last character.

Best regards,
