Can you please confirm if you tried to paste the password and it didn’t show in the terminal? In that case, that’s a built in feature. Your password will never be visible when connecting via SSH.

A better way to login would be to add your SSH key to the droplet. That way, you won’t actually need to use a password, you would automatically login.
