I am using Ubuntu 16.04
Whenever I use sudo and have to type in my password, the password shows in the terminal screen as I type, only hiding the first character. For example, if my password were "password", as I type the password in the terminal, it would show: $ assword (only hiding the character "p")
I want to hide all the characters as I type (I don't need Ubuntu to show asterisks instead, I want it to show exactly nothing)
How do I achieve that?
For those who think my question is a possible duplicate of another question on "how to make terminal password visible", I want to clarify that it's not the same. It's simply the opposite, and the answers in the other post did not help me solve my problem.
