Finding Saved Passwords

passwords

I’m helping a friend who doesn’t know his password to a site, but miraculously is able to login to the site at any time. The answer to this conundrum is that his browser is logging him into the site every time.

To find your saved passwords in Chrome, go to

Settings – Show Advanced Settings – Passwords and forms – click on the Manage Passwords button.

You’ll notice that I don’t have any listed in my Chrome account since I use Lastpass to manage my passwords. Most people can find their passwords listed using this method if you use Chrome.

If you use other browsers, click here to find their solutions.

Below is option #2 – which will show you the password hidden underneath the asterisks.
