Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome and other browsers come with a feature that allows user to save password and user login. When the next time the user is accessing the particular page the login name and password are automatically populated. This feature is really good and saves time and efforts from the user’s side. Many people use this feature especially on their personal computer.
Tough this feature where the browser remembers your login name and password may speed up your work; it is not really a secure option. If you have a personal Desktop or a Laptop you can use this feature. However do note that it is really easy to read the hidden password which is shown as stars or big dots.
How to read or retrieve the hidden password stored in your Browser
- Browse to the page on the browser that has the login details. You will see the login name and the password either as dots or stars.
- Paste this script into the address bar on the same page (overwrite the exisiting url) and press enter.
You will then see the hidden password.
