This library can be used to get a password from the terminal. Even though it
sounds simple and sounds like the `readline` module should be able to do it.
But readline module does not support it.
If available, this uses `/dev/tty` to avoid interfering with any data being
piped in or out of stdio. This function prints a prompt (by default
`Password:`) and then accepts input without echoing.
Node.js is an event-based server-side JavaScript engine.
