Description

7 years ago
To prevent users from accidentally leaking their passwords through hand movements, device vibration, or sound, we should stop sending camera and mic data while users are entering passwords into Firefox.

Ideally this would also apply to passwords entered in other apps.  I think there are OS APIs to find out whether other apps are in password-entry mode. (cf bug 288275.) (Do other RTC apps do this? e.g. Skype, FaceTime, Vidyo, Flash, GTalk)
