You can additionally add the below scripts to the Footer Block in Theme Options to add a show/hide password checkbox so users can validate the password being entered is what is expected and not an older outdated password from their personal device password manager.

<script>
//This adds an attr("id", "evoxtypepass"); to the password field for the second script to point to based on the checkbox status and adds the checkbox and show password text.
$("#loginModal > div > div > div.modal-body > form > div.form-group.relative > div > input").attr("id", "evoxtypepass");
$('#loginModal > div > div > div.modal-body > form > div.form-group.relative > div').after('<input type="checkbox" onclick="Toggle()"> Show Password');
</script>
<script>
// Changes the type of input to password or text based on checkbox status
function Toggle() {
var temp = document.getElementById("evoxtypepass");
if (temp.type === "password") {
temp.type = "text";
}
else {
temp.type = "password";
}
};
