If you want to remove the reveal password button for saved logins in the Firefox browser on a Windows 11/10 computer, then this tutorial will definitely be helpful. Like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and all other modern browsers, Firefox also lets you save logins and passwords for websites. You can easily find and manage saved Passwords in Firefox and also view a particular saved password using the reveal password or show password button/icon. Those who don’t want that can simply remove or disable that reveal password icon using two built-in features of Windows 11/10 OS.
Do note that removing the reveal password button doesn’t stop you from copying or editing a saved password. It helps to keep the password remain hidden behind bullets (or black circles) on the saved login page. You can also bring back the reveal password button when you need it.
