In this article, we used font awsome CDN to use the eyes icon. We also created a JavaScript function to make this happen, which is responding on the onClick() event.

<!DOCTYPE html>
	<title>Password Hide Show</title>
<!-- This is font awsome cdn to use eye icons -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="">
	<!-- This is Password field -->
	Password: <input type="password" id="passwordInputID" value="MyFakePassword">
	<!-- This is eye button -->
	<span style="border:1px solid #ddd;padding:0 2px;">
		<i id="eyeChangeId" class="fa fa-eye" onclick="eyeEnableOrDisable()"></i>
<script type="text/javascript">
	//Javascript function definition
	function eyeEnableOrDisable() 
	  var x = document.getElementById("passwordInputID"); //getting the password field element
	  var y = document.getElementById("eyeChangeId"); //getting the eye button element
	  if (x.type === "password") 
	    x.type = "text";
	    x.type = "password";

The main logic behind this is just to change the input type and changing the class name of the icon. It is very easy to implement password show and hide with eye button using JavaScript.
