I am in the same situation as Von.  I am always showing my screen to
people.  I leave terminals open all the time. I invoke pass from any handy
local terminal.  The result is there is always a terminal with a password
showing somewhere on my many desktops.

Yes I know I should not be so careless.  I could adopt better procedures
surrounding my password access.

I choose to different path. I would rather software make my life easier
than that I should be its slave.
