While using android banking application I found an unusual form style. This form is for adding new Beneficiary. It requires adding bank account number two times to avoid adding the wrong account number.
What I found different is first account number text field is secure and re-enter account number is the plain text field.
Here is that screen:
It doesn't make much sense for me because Account number is not much private detail and even if it is the second field is plain.
What one benefit I can think of is alertness. While making secure text field entry user become more alert because one can't read after making entry so the user tries to enter without mistake.
Is this only reason to do so or there are any other benefits of doing this?
