Find Hidden Password From the Password Field: – This trick works for the saved passwords only. So if you want to use it to steal or take somebody’s password. (which I do not advise at all)
I have included screenshots from Google Chrome. In all other browsers, it is almost the same without step number 3. This trick applies to all websites while I have added here the Gmail page only.
Important – You should have “remember password” checked in advance while entering login detail. Unless, the password will not be auto-filled by the browser when you need to know.
How to Find Hidden Password?
1- Go to the login page of Gmail.
2- Enter username so that password will be auto-filled.
3- Press ‘ctrl+shift+i’ if you are using chrome or ‘Q’ if you are using Firefox or ‘F12’ if you are using Internet Explorer & you will see a bar at the bottom of your screen displaying the HTML code below your page.
4- Select password field to see its source code in the code of origin field shown in the bottom of the browser.
5- Change type=”password” to type=”text” & its done. You can now view the password as a text.
Usually, I have to open a text file full of usernames & passwords for that but acting a lazy one; I prefer the shortcuts habitually. This one I learned a few months back.
Moreover, I use it whenever I need to read the password behind asterisks to copy it & paste somewhere else. The logic is very simple.
