How can I disable reveal password button for Wi-Fi networks on Windows 8?

Hi, how are you? I want to disable the “Reveal Password” button like in this tutorial ( but I have Windows 8 Home Premium meaning I don’t have a Group Policy Editor. Any ideas?

    perhaps the reg keys can work also in your case, remember to make a restore point before applying the tweak.

    First backup your registry as you need to edit it by creating a Restore Point.
    Open your registry editor (type regedit on the Start Screen).
    Navigate to this key:
    Right click on the key Windows and click New then Key.
    Name the new key CredUI.
    Click on the key CredUI and in the right hand pane create a new DWORD and call it DisablePasswordReveal.
    Double click on the new DWORD and give it a value of 1
    Reboot your system and you will no longer see the Reveal Password button.
