Every time we login to any kind of online service or website, we all need to use our username and password. If you are a frequent user of such service, your web browser tend to remember your password so that you can login without typing the user name and password all over again. This is both good and bad, it is good because you don’t need to remember your login credentials and it’s bad if you can not remember your password and you need to login to the same website from a different computer.
Recently I have been thorough such incident when I simply could not remember the password. Luckily there is a way around to reveal hidden password from a frequently used web form. In this post I will show you how to find such hidden password. So, here you go.
Step 1: Take the cursor on the password input field as if you are about to type the password. Do no type anything though.
Step 2: Press the “right button” of your mouse and select the “Inspect Element” option from the menu. The text for “Inspect Element” might vary depending on your web browser but most modern browser supports such feature.
Step 3: A new window would show up where you would see some HTML Code. It will look more like this.

See, where it says type=”password”, take the cursor on the top of the word “password” and double click your left mouse button.
Step 4: Simply delete the word “password” and write “text”. Now go back to the web from and press your left button anywhere on the page and take a look at the password field. You should have your password in text format.
As I mentioned earlier, this trick should work on all modern web browser. So, try it out right now and let me know. If you find this trick to be useful, feel free to share it with your friends and family. Stay tuned for more.
