* All versions of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' have the "say the password aloud" version of this trope. Presumably they are checking for voice matches too, but a few episodes have shown that the computer can be fooled by a recording of the officer in question saying the password - or even just a ''really good impersonator''.

** Even if that start-up password WAS secure, it does *NOT* lock up the documents stored on a hard drive, which can easily be accessed by another operating system to which you DO have the password. It merely prevents access through the OS installed on that drive. To secure the actual documents, you would need file encryption.

** In ''A Scandal in Belgravia'', after Sherlock correctly infers that the blanks in the password to [[TheVamp Irene]]'s smartphone, which displays "I AM ***LOCKED," should be filled in with [[spoiler:the letters S,H,E and R]], they appear rather dramatically on the phone's screen.
** And again in ''The Hounds of Baskerville,'' with the password to Major Barrymore's mainframe.

* ''WarGames'' has a HighlyVisiblePassword typed in a terminal program. In most real-life command line programs, a password simply won't show up ''at all'' rather than showing up either as plain text or as asterisks. This can be irritating if you don't realize you've made a typo because you can't see that there's one extra asterisk.
