Forget password reveal password

I found what seems like very poor security for Teamviewer.

When I goto Forgot password page in Teamviewer. I put my email address in and it gives a box that reveals my password


Now admittedly it still requires the second factor to continue which Teamviewer then sends an email but this still seems to be odd in that it reveals the 1st factor of my actual TeamViewer password to just about anyone on the planet who has my email address.,


Does anyone think that this method has some serious security flaws or am I wrong?


I attach a screen shot where I have redacted my email but you can just click the EYE icon in the Password field and reveal my password.
