    In the v62 change logs, the following was changed:
    • Fixed case CPANEL-9262: Directory Privacy: don't print password during confirmation.
    I have a customer who misses this. Is there an option to re-enable this feature? I told him probably not because displaying passwords like that is generally considered a security risk, but I would ask anyway. Frankly it always surprised me that it did that in the first place.

    Greetings, there is no way to re-enable this that I'm aware of. There really should be no reason to display the password the user just typed in, in plain text.
