As designed Visible plain text on Password Field in ACP

If you change someone's password on the admin control panel (xF 1.1.0), the password field shows the plain text password (no asterisks). Working as designed?

Yes, this is as designed since it's someone else's password and we assume you're just setting it temporarily or for testing, and we also don't verify what you typed.
