Use JPasswordField#getPassword() instead.

Even then, you should not be using getText()
From the JPasswordField API

Deprecated. As of Java 2 platform v1.2, replaced by getPassword.
Returns the text contained in this TextComponent. If the underlying document is null, will give a NullPointerException.
For security reasons, this method is deprecated. Use the * getPassword method instead.
