Password Entry (workflows)

Recommended Posts

There's more to securely getting a password than hiding the input. In particular, you need to enable Secure Entry so other applications (like Alfred and TextExpander) can't observe the input.


This can be done quite easily in AppleScript. If you open the Snippets setting in Alfred Preferences, you'll notice that it tells you that Secure Entry is enabled when this dialog is active.

set myPassword to (text returned of (display dialog "Enter your password" default answer "" with title "Password" with hidden answer))
