We received a report from a Windows user that prompts of type password still show their value on Windows MinTTY bash prompts.

const answer: inquirer.Answers = await inquirer.createPromptModule({ output: process.stderr })({
        type: 'password',
        name: 'password',
        message: 'Password:',

For example, password typed is aaaaa:

? Password: [input is hidden] aaaaa
? Password: [hidden]
