Password entry echo in Whonix 12

Since upgrading to Whonix 12, when entering my password in Konsole it shows asterisks instead of remaining blank. Whereas before it would look like this:

Enter password:_

Now it looks like this:

Enter password: ********************

This happens in both the Gateway and Workstation. Anyone else experiencing this? How can I fix it?

This is expected. It is usability feature, because a lot users were confused by the “nothing happens as I type” “issue”. Just leave it as is. Or if you really want to get rid of it, delete this file.

sudo rm /etc/sudoers.d/pwfeedback

Thanks, Patrick!
