View Passwords hidden in asterisks

on Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Everyone of us make our life too easy by letting the browsers to remember the username and password of our online accounts.

After a period of time, we tend to forget what the password was.  So the question is whether I can see what is behind that black dots in the password textbox or not?  Yes, You can.

I am now going to explain to you how to retrieve/view your passwords.  I am now using the gmail screen for that.

First, right click the password textbox and from the options click on Inspect Element(Q).

Then, a small window would come up with a few lines of code.  You need not worry about the codes.   The line in which the password will be highlighted.

Now double click on the term password and change it to text and press enter.  Now you see whats behind the dots. 

I am embedding a video so that things are easier for you.
