Every device does this as far as I know, iPhones and Android. If people are close enough to see what buttons you're pressing, not having them highlighted won't change anything. If you're worried about strangers seeing your pin try using a longer one, no one will memorise it on one glance.

Or type faster.

If you really don't want the highlights to appear, then vote or suggest that feature in the Windows Feedback app (if you're using Windows 10 Mobile).

well, other mobiles offer that you don't have to use numbers like in 19th century..... and even if you swipe over the points, the trace is not visible, because they will not be highlighted.
PS: it is possible to type faster on the keyboard not on smartphone....
