How to View Hidden Passwords in Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer

Usually most people log into many services like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, etc. using autofill feature of browsers. It helps them sig in to the site with a click. However, as they aren’t typing their username and passwords anymore, after a while, most of them can’t remember their passwords. Here is how to view hidden password stored on your browser without any third-party software tool.

 For security reasons, your browser shows password only as asterisks, so you could not see what it was in a normal way, but there is a way to find out in Chrome and Firefox.

In Firefox it is comparatively very easy to see the saved passwords, but it in Chrome it requires some tedious works. In Firefox, go to option and under security tab click on saved password option. It’ll list site names. Just click show password option to view your password.

 In Google Chrome, you can view hidden passwords using the ‘Inspect element’ option from the right-click menu. Right-click the asterisks in the password field and click ‘Inspect element’.

  This will open an inspection window and the required field should be highlighted. Right-click ‘password’, select ‘Edit attribute’ from the context menu and change ‘password’ to ‘text’. Click anywhere in the main window and your password will be revealed.

 For Internet Explorer (or all popular browsers such as Safari, Opera, Chrome and Firefox) you can use a free tool WebBrowserPassView from Nirsoft. It is a password recovery tool that can reveal the passwords stored by the browser.
