This is a nice piece of work..and something that I need to remember. Many thanks to http://www.computingunleashed.com/recover-passwords-behind-asterisks.html .

For some reason if you don’t remember the password used to login to your google accounts or any other, and want to get back the hidden password, there is an easy way to view those passwords hidden behind the asterisk (*) characters.

You might have given the option to save the password for that particular site when your browser asked, the first time while entering the user name and password while logging in. The browser will automatically display the password if you have saved it before and you only need to press the login button. But if you need to know / don’t remember the password that is hidden behind the asterisk characters here is dead simple way to see those passwords quickly.

For firefox users, there’s always the option to see saved passwords. But this trick is far more simple than that and works on Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Netscape, Safari and Opera. Here’s what you have to do.

Visit the login screen of the desired website.

The browser will automatically shown the passwords in the fields, but will be hidden with the asterisks characters.

Now, Copy and paste the following code in your address bar and press enter.

The password will now be shown in a small window.

Tip: Always note down the important passwords of your online accounts in a piece of paper and keep it safely. Never leave the passwords for the browsers to remember.

You can also find out on chrome and firefox the hidden passwords behind Asterisk. open the webpage that contains the hidden password like hotmail and facebook , right click on the password field and click in inspect elements , then a small page will show up on the buttom of your web page , follow the html texts until you find password word change it to text and hit enter then the hidden password will show up directly in abc and numbers :) Enjoy
