Use-Case for Encrypted Custom Fields and why are they rendered as input type=”text” and not as type=”password” on standard UI?

Can’t understand why Encrypted Custom Fields are not rendered as type=”password” on the standard UI. The first time you input or later if you change the content, it’s just plain text. If you come back to the edit screen, it is at least replaced by * – but still exposing the length… This odd behavior leads to very risky side-effects, e. g. if you use it for passwords or other sensitive data, it typically ends up in your browsers form-cache and may be accidentally disclosed to people who look on your screen.

What does it mean to escape a string?

I was reading Does $_SESSION[‘username’] need to be escaped before getting into an SQL query? and it said “You need to escape every string you pass to the sql query, regardless of its origin”. Now I know something like this is really basic. A Google search turned up over 20, 000 results. Stackoverflow alone had 20 pages of results but no one actually explains what escaping a string is or how to do it. It is just assumed. Can you help me? I want to learn because as always I am making a web app in PHP.
