Bug Description

This may be a known issue, but the interactive terminal initiated by the "one-click" backup or restore does not mask out the passwords you type into them. While this isn't a huge deal to most folks, it still exposes your password to view in plaintext to anyone behind you, rendering it not particularly secure...
