Code Snippet - Read Password from Console C#

 Code Snippet - Read Password from Console C#

        The following code snippet shows how to read string from console without outputting the typed in characters, useful for reading passwords etc...

        The important difference is to use Console.ReadKey(true) for reading each character instead of Console.ReadKey() or Console.ReadLine().


var sb = new StringBuilder();

    while (true)

    {

        var c = Console.ReadKey(true);

        if (c.Key == ConsoleKey.Enter)

            break;

        sb.Append(c.KeyChar);

    }


    return sb.ToString();
