Keep entire password visible while typing - How?

On my Verizon Note 3 (US), when I type passwords for websites, etc, the password appears as x's. I know that is for security, but I want the entire password to be visible as I type. I have the option turned on where the last character entered is displayed for a second or so.

I have shaky hands and often hit the wrong key, or unintentionally hit a key twice. If I don't catch it while the last character briefly displays, I get password errors. It sometimes takes me 3 or 4 tries to get it right. If the entire password were visible, I could easily see that I mis-typed it and then could correct it before hitting enter.

Is this possible?

Sorry
I dont believe you can keep passwords visible unless the web site has one of those check boxes. The reason for this is because when you input a character it is registered at a web level not a phone level meaning the website itself is blocking the characters to be shown by having the dots.

Thanks for the information. Guess I'll need to pay closer attention to the last typed character as it appears briefly.

alternatively you can type passwords into a note,save it,then copy/paste passwords when needed.
