Delayed Password Masking jQuery Plugin - jQuery mask-password.js

A jQuery Delayed Password Masking plugin that hides the user password after a configurable delay while typing in a password field. 

This plugin was developed out of the need to make password entry easier on mobile devices. As the user types in their password, each character is masked with * after a delay.

How to use it:

1. Download and insert the minified version of the mask-password.js into the document.

<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/dist/jquery.mask-password.min.js"></script>

2. Attach the function to the password field and the plugin will do the rest.

<input type='password'></input>
$(function() {

3. Override the default delay (1000ms) by passing the delay parameter to the maskPassword() method.

$(function() {
