I am designing a signup form that has the following fields in it:
- Confirm Password
- Where did you hear about us?
I have to show validation errors in these fields.

- Showing a popup with a summary of errors (Not a good idea)
- Showing placeholders in each field with examples then showing an error message on signup. (Can password fields have example placeholder?)
Any idea on how to handle this situation?
