Today, we’ll explain to you how to show and hide password using jQuery.

In this toggle or show/hide password functionality, you can see the password during writing. Here we check the input field type, if there is a password, we will change it to text. If it is a text, we will change it to password using jQuery.

Here, we will create the HTML form where we have taken the password field as shown below. Write the following code and run to check the output.
