How to find the entered password in Google Chrome?
Here’s a simple way to find out what those characters are behind a typed password in any website.
Sometimes, it so happens that we tend to forget our own passwords. However, thanks to advanced browser settings these days that we can enable ‘remember passwords’ within our own computer’s browsers. At the same time, we can also have a feature called ‘Autofill’ enabled so that the fields are automatically populated without us having to key in every time we visit a website.
Now, if you are in a situation where you have enabled the Autofill feature and have already input the password in some website, but you forgot what the password was – AND you want to know now what that damn password is – you’ve come to the right place to find out how to do just that!!
I will walk you through this procedure assuming that you’re working in Google Chrome. This will work on other browsers too, but the corresponding name given to this feature by other browsers slightly vary. The website that we're going to look at is mail.yahoo.com
Here is the crux: let’s say you are now in the login page of the website with the username and password already entered but the submit button is not yet clicked.
Right click on the password field where the asterisks or the dots are shown.
Select ‘Inspect Element’: it will directly highlight the password section of the code behind the webpage in the bottom section of the browser.
Here, change the “type” attribute by replacing “password” with “text”. You will notice that the password is now visible!
Note: this is a trick to know only if you really need to find the password on your own computer. Please don’t assume that this post encourages stealing passwords nor stalking others’ accounts on others’ computers.
