Description Prashant Cholachagudda 2015-02-04 00:56:31 UTC
Entry control does not mask the entered characters when IsPassword = true and Keyboard = Keyboard.Telephone
Note that it happens only on Android

Sample code:

	public class App : Application
		public App ()
			// The root page of your application
			MainPage = new ContentPage {
				Content = new StackLayout {
					VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center,
					Children = {
						new Entry {
							IsPassword = true,
							Keyboard = Keyboard.Telephone

I have checked this issue and I am able to reproduce this issue.

I observed that when IsPassword property is set to true the entry control is not masking the 
text when Keyboard= Keyboard.Telephone.

Unfortunately Android does not support Telephone inputs as passwords (odd I know but yeah android is weird that way). If you want the password style behavior with a numeric use the NumericKeyboard and not the TelephoneKeyboard.

This is just a matter of a simple platform limitation unfortunately.
Comment 4 Ram Chandra 2015-02-16 03:25:13 UTC
As per comment 3, Android does not support Telephone inputs as passwords. Hence I am closing this issue.
Comment 5 Melbourne Developer 2017-02-15 23:38:48 UTC
Why was this issue closed? 

If the Entry control doesn't work properly for passwords on Android, we're going to need a separate control which does allow for passwords on Android.
