It seems developer forgot to implement this feature in console version.

You can't manually type words into the dialogue box on the console versions. They altered the dialogue segments where it was required, though they passed over a few of the non-essential dialogue segments that include it.

For what it's worth, none of the passwords work. You can collect up to four different passwords around The Prison, but all of them are expired. You still have to either fight your way past the turrets, or use the alternate entrance through the cave full of badgers.

The only thing using the passwords accomplishes is giving you one new dialogue option with Red - you tell him that none of the passwords worked, which prompts him to "remember" that he just changed it yesterday.

I agree that this is sort of an oversight (should have just removed the text prompt), but report that I've successfully finished the game completionist-style on PC without using the text field once. Except for trying Red's passwords. That don't work.

None of the passwords you can 'find' will work. The actual password is Rosebud (Citadel password from Wasteland 1) It is unfortunate that they won't let you manually type in the codes on console.

I know that the trader Fred Darvis has PREFERRED, and pig farmer William Brown has CODE, and with the Ranger team who saved Highpool I'm pretty sure I got one from Celia Caminada too, but where do you get the fourth one? PASSWORD was recognized by the game as expired, but that's just something I tried.

The team that saved Ag Center only gets a ["Damonta" was already discussed] from Celia Caminada, making me want to string her up next to George, because Damonta was never discussed with that NPC.
