I disagree, people would expect it (and file bugs) for other passwords
for the same reasons (other people watching while you install Guix

German “Verbergen” is somewhat longer than “Hide”; I tried translating
it locally and it still fits perfectly on my low res AMD GPU screen.

When creating a user account, the translation for Home Directory
(“Persönliches Verzeichnis”) gets cut off to “Persönliches Verzeic”,
but I believe this is not important.
