Allow Maestro to "show password" when entering wifi password and WPS

I'd like an option for Maestro to show the password while it's being entered. Starred passwords are nice for those devices that have the luxury of a physical keyboard, but on a touch screen it is much easier to make mistakes. 

I use WPA-RADIUS at home (because I can, because it's more secure) but I put a separate SSID with PSK on it, but I put a long password (generated here: https://xkpasswd.net/). I figured if I'm forced to use WPA-PSK on consumer devices, might as well use a long password to prevent easy guessing. 

Another option I'd like to see is WPS, where you push a button on the router and can then authorize the device to connect. 

Not sure if this is an OS limitation in the Maestro's tablet hardware.

I asked the team for this as well a few weeks back, the ability to see the password.  

Thanks for bringing this up Ria.
