react native – KeyboardAvoidingView not working with TextInput password fields Properly on Android-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I am using react-native-paper for Text Input and using KeyboardAvoidingView to remove keyboard issues and put Input fields above the KeyBoard, And this is working for other TextInput fields as expected not with the password fields, But When I remove secureTextEntry={true} this works fine on android, but this is not the solution as this line is mandatory in Password fields.
I also tried many libraries like react-native-keyboard-aware-scroll-view

    /* @flow */

import * as React from 'react';
import {
  StyleSheet,
  ScrollView,
  KeyboardAvoidingView,
} from 'react-native';
import { TextInput, Button} from 'react-native-paper';


export default class App extends React.Component {
  static title = 'TextInput';

  state = {
    name: '',
    lastName:'',
    phone:'',
    email:'',
    states:'',
    password:'',
    repeatPassword:'',
  };

  render() {

    return (
      <KeyboardAvoidingView
        style={styles.wrapper}
        behavior="padding"
        keyboardVerticalOffset={80}
      >
        <ScrollView
          style={[styles.container, { backgroundColor: '#bdda' }]}
          keyboardShouldPersistTaps={'always'}
          removeClippedSubviews={false}
        >
          <TextInput
            style={styles.inputContainerStyle}
            label="First Name"
            placeholder="Type First Name"
            value={this.state.name}
            onChangeText={name => this.setState({ name })}
            returnKeyType={"next"}
            onSubmitEditing={() => { this.lastName.focus() }}
            blurOnSubmit={false}
          />

          <TextInput
            style={styles.inputContainerStyle}
            label="Last Name"
            placeholder="Type Last Name"
            value={this.state.lastName}
            onChangeText={lastName => this.setState({ lastName })}
            ref={(input) => { this.lastName = input; }}
            onSubmitEditing={() => { this.phone.focus() }}
            returnKeyType={"next"}
            blurOnSubmit={false}
          />

          <TextInput
            style={styles.inputContainerStyle}
            label="Phone"
            placeholder="Type Phone"
            value={this.state.phone}
            onChangeText={phone => this.setState({ phone })}
            ref={(input) => { this.phone = input; }}
            onSubmitEditing={() => { this.email.focus() }}
            returnKeyType={"next"}
            blurOnSubmit={false}
          />

          <TextInput
            style={styles.inputContainerStyle}
            label="Email"
            placeholder="Type Email"
            value={this.state.email}
            onChangeText={email => this.setState({ email })}
            ref={(input) => { this.email = input; }}
            onSubmitEditing={() => { this.states.focus() }}
            returnKeyType={"next"}
            blurOnSubmit={false}

          />

          <TextInput
            style={styles.inputContainerStyle}
            label="State"
            placeholder="Type State"
            value={this.state.states}
            onChangeText={states => this.setState({ states })}
            ref={(input) => { this.states = input; }}
            onSubmitEditing={() => { this.password.focus() }}
            returnKeyType={"next"}
            blurOnSubmit={false}
          />

          <TextInput
            style={styles.inputContainerStyle}
            label="Password"
            placeholder="Type Password"
            secureTextEntry={true}
            value={this.state.password}
            onChangeText={password => this.setState({ password })}
            ref={(input) => { this.password = input; }}
            onSubmitEditing={() => { this.repeatPassword.focus() }}
            returnKeyType={"next"}
            blurOnSubmit={false}
          />

          <TextInput
            style={styles.inputContainerStyle}
            label="Repeat Password"
            placeholder="Type Repeat Password"
            secureTextEntry={true}
            value={this.state.repeatPassword}
            onChangeText={repeatPassword => this.setState({ repeatPassword })}
            ref={(input) => { this.repeatPassword = input; }}
            returnKeyType={"done"}
            blurOnSubmit={true}
          />

          <Button onPress={() => alert('I am pressed :P-')} style={{marginTop:20}}>
              Submit
            </Button>
        </ScrollView>
      </KeyboardAvoidingView>
    );
  }
}

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    padding: 25,
    marginTop:40,
  },
  wrapper: {
    flex: 1,
  },
  inputContainerStyle: {
    margin: 8,
  },
});

To check this issue I also created Demo Project , This issue is only in Android, In belowed Screen Shot Password text fields is active, but password fields is hidden, Screen Shot .

How to solve:

Had the same problem. I managed it by setting secureTextEntry prop to true only when the password input is focused.

 const [secureTextEntry, setSecureTextEntry] = useState(false)

 ...

<TextInput
     style={styles.inputContainerStyle}
     label="Repeat Password"
     placeholder="Type Repeat Password"
     secureTextEntry={secureTextEntry}
     value={this.state.repeatPassword}
     onFocus={() => setSecureTextEntry(true)}
     onChangeText={repeatPassword => this.setState({ repeatPassword })}
     ref={(input) => { this.repeatPassword = input; }}
     returnKeyType={"done"}
     blurOnSubmit={true}
 />
