import {
} from 'ngx-show-hide-password';

  standalone: true,
  imports: [
export class AppComponent {
  constructor(private showHideService: ShowHideService) {
    effect(() => {
      const show = this.showHideService.getSignal('password')();

as module (angular pre v16 and ngx-show-hide-password pre v2.7.0):

// app.module.ts
import { ShowHidePasswordModule } from 'ngx-show-hide-password';
// no need to import @fortawesome/angular-fontawesome for the component
  imports: [

template as component ...

<show-hide-password size="lg" btnStyle="primary" [btnOutline]="false">
  <input type="password" name="..." >

or template with directives ...

  <i matSuffix
    [showHideStatus]="{ materialIcon: true, id: 'mysecretpassword' }"
