Instead using of the conventional password design (***** in a text entry field) in my mobile application, I've been thinking about letting the user create a 4 item password from a collection of 10 fruits instead.

As a result there would be 10,000 possible combinations. You simply type username and match up your password (e.g. apple, pear, apple, apple) to login.

But I just thought as the password in our case would be visible on entry, it kind of defeats the point of such a mechanism. Is there any way I can implement this and solve this security risk?
