Golang : Get password from console input without echo or masked


Tags : golang password masking

Found this package https://github.com/howeyc/gopass that allows Golang developers to build text based application that takes in password without echo(silent mode) or use masking.

For example :

 package main

 import (
 "fmt"
 "github.com/howeyc/gopass"
 )

 func main() {
 fmt.Printf("Enter silent password: ")
 silentPassword := gopass.GetPasswd() // Silent

 // input is in byte and need to convert to string
 // for storing and comparison
 fmt.Println(string(silentPassword))

 fmt.Printf("Enter masked password: ")
 maskedPassword := gopass.GetPasswdMasked() // Masked
 fmt.Println(string(maskedPassword))

 }

Sample output :

Enter silent password:

abc

Enter masked password: ********

abc12345
