i'm currently writing a little console game at the moment and i have come across something. i need a little password thing where you can't see the characters. lets say i were to put in a 'Console.Write("password: ")' and then 'string password = Console.ReadLine()' it would just do that, but i need it so that it hides the characters that you are typing in or it changes them into something like '*'. is it possible to do that? can someone please provide me with some code and a little explanation? thanks!
