Password field input masked with "dots"?

Hello all:

I am new to Xamarin, and am following the tutorials here:
docs.microsoft.com/en-us/xamarin/get-started/tutorials/web-service/?tabs=vswin

I am trying to extend the example, and add Username and Password fields, and in the Main.storyboard view I set the "Content Type" of the Password text field to "Password", but it still shows the actual text input. I have been searching for an answer, but have only found solutions for Android. Can anyone give me a hint on how to do this?

Also, that tutorial says to start with a new "IOS App (Xamarin)" project, but then the tutorials I found here:

docs.microsoft.com/en-us/xamarin/get-started/quickstarts/single-page?pivots=windows

start with a "Mobile App (Xamarin Forms" type, which I guess supports both IOS and Android? Is there any "better" option?

Thanks in advance for any and all input.

John.
