This is strange to me because you already store the Admin-password on the 
server-side, dosn't you? Then you show that to the user by, yes - giving 
them stars in the Admin-password field.

That was the general idea. You also have to give the user the oportynity to 
remove the stars, and retype the password themselves. 

I did not comment on the value of real world because the WLUS is not in 
production, and you did not separate a request for a feature from the 
real-life-test of the function implemented. When not distinguising this to 
different fixed places, then it's easy to get blind. Here is why: 

It's pretty obvious that leeving a feeld blank is not a good things when you 
sometimes get an error-message where the field requires a password, and 
other times don't need a password in the same place. When hundreds of 
teachers expericenses that, they will give you real life feedback that you 
long will remember.
