here is a work around.

Add a renderer and set the Password box Text to the Element Text.

 protected override void OnElementPropertyChanged(object sender, PropertyChangedEventArgs e)
            base.OnElementPropertyChanged(sender, e);

            if (e.PropertyName == "Text" && Element.IsPassword)

                var _passwordBox = (PasswordBox)Control.Children[1];
                _passwordBox.Password = Element.Text;
