Do you mean that you want to block out the letters that they type, like when you enter a password? In a console you would not get the input from System.in until they pressed enter, so you would NOT get a chance to mess with it at all. Consider a small JOptionPane using the showInputDialog and have the input go into a JPasswordField component.
