Quick Poll: Visibility of password fields

We want to introduce an inline toggle button for the visibility of password fields. Please help us to define the optimal behavior.

When designing on the KNetworkManager, I kept stumbling over the ‘show password’ checkbox in the dialogue. The idea arose to move this directly into the input field using some inline toggle button. The whole thing would look something like the following:

Now there is the chance to introduce some magic and try to guess which state should be used initially. And we would like to get some feedback from you about the preferred way of using it, so, please participate in the following poll.

What is your preferred behavior of the show / hide status of the password field?
