Here’s a quick trick/hack to view hidden saved passwords that appear as stars or dots on a webpage password field.


  1. Right click on the form field with the saved password you’d like to view. Choose “Inspect Element“.

2. You will see the html for that element already selected.

3. In that line find type=password and change to type=text. Click anywhere on the web page for that change to be applied visually.


Voila, you can see your forgotten password! 🙂
