lockIf you use a lot of online services it also means that you have got a lot of passwords and usernames to remember. Aware of this issue, all Internet browsers have got a special feature which, as soon as you login your email account for example,  prompt you to save password and username so that, next time you will use the service again, the browser will fill in the login interface for you. However, while the username is fully displayed, the password is hidden by asterisks. Now, if for any reason you don’t remember such a password you won’t have any way to recover it. Usually, to get it back, you will have to buy a special piece of software. Recently, I have found an interesting, amazing piece of code which will reveal all your forgotten passwords hidden behind asterisk in your browser…in a couple of seconds and without spending a dime!

The piece of code I am going to show you works with all Internet browsers including: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari etc. Here is the procedure to follow to reveal your passwords:

  1. Open your browser.
  2. Go to the Web page containing the login in form where you saved your password.
  3. Copy and paste the following piece of code to your browser address bar:
  4. Press Enter.
  5. As soon as you press Enter, the browser will display a window containing the password!

    If the password is saved in your browser then you can try going to the options of the browser which has a feature which can show the saved password..no need to use any scripts..

  2. A casual browser Says:

    This is the most stupid thing ever. Every modern day browser can show you hidden passwords. The asterisks are a form of protection so that other people sitting next to you will not view your password. Dumbest thing ever

  3. A. Says:

    This does not work in Firefox. You can view your passwords that have been saved in Firefox anyway.

    Looks like the script adds an “n” at the end of each password. I guess the intention was to add “\n” instead, to insert a line break.
    Interesting nonetheless.
