wp_login_failedoption is enabled, the password entered is shown to admins:
<some_username> tried to log in to <some_WP_site>
Password tried aaa

I do not like it. Admins should NOT see what users entered – this is Big Brother. They should see there was a fail on login due to incorrect password, indeed, but not the password itself.
I am suggesting add an option (checkbox)
do not log the password enteredor something like that.
