I suspect that this might depend on Git version and configuration, and
things like gpg-agent.  In my case, it displayed a window (in WM sense,
not in Emacs sense) asking for password, and only after clicking
"Cancel", it asked within Emacs.  The prompt was:

Password for 'https://address@hidden':

and indeed the characters of the password were visible.
