Bash has nothing to do with accepting passwords during logins.  That
is done by login(1) (for console logins) or by sshd or the like, long
before bash is ever started.

I do not understand what this is supposed to be showing.

If you are asking about a case like this:

  echo -n 'Enter password: '
  stty -echo
  read passwd
  stty echo

Then this is badly written code.  Use "read -s" to suppress terminal
echo, or run the stty -echo BEFORE displaying the prompt.
