For the paranoid among us, you might want to follow this with either history -c to clear all your history or history -d <linenum> to delete the line with the password from your history file.

or easier way is to put these lines into a script and call the script and delete the script afterwards
This way it won't show in history of commands.

The easiest way is actually to put a space in front of the command. That shouldn't log it to history.
