We are using technology in each and every extent of our life. Technology has fully changed our lives and now we are almost dependent on it. While it was just fun for us to remember the street and house numbers of our friends and relatives in school times, it is now even difficult to remember the mobile number of our parents. We find it at our mobile handset phone book.
We often use desktop and laptop to check our emails and other web resources which work with username and password. The web browser provides an autofill feature to help us to auto enter the previously filled credentials except the passwords. Yes passwords can be kept in browser cache memory by using ‘remember me’ or ‘keep signed in’ feature. But it is again another dependency on artificial memory and when you actually need to fill your password rather using another computer where your password is not saves you need to enter it. Sometimes you fall in glitch when the system asks to re-enter the same password to protect and confirm the password. Here your memory has gone for a toss, you actually need to remember your password. You can see the login page with your username and password entered, however the password in asterisks. You tried and put your every effort but you cannot see the password behind the asterisks.
Here is one perfect solution for you. As you have already entered the password but you cannot see it due to asterisk you can revel it from browser backend coding by following just few steps. Some web services also use these same steps when providing the ‘show password’ check box with the text box are where we put our password.
Follow these steps to see your password hidden behind the asterisks:
Right-click on the password box and select “Inspect Element” or “Inspect”. This brings up the developer console. On the line that starts with “input type=password” change the word “password” to “text.” This will reveal your password. While you can always pop into your browsers menu screen to look up saved passwords, this is a far quicker way to see your hidden passwords.
Enjoy surfing, but keep a habit to store your password in a protected sheet. You can keep your password sheet on Sky Drive or Google drive where you need only one password. Means you need to remember only one password of your online drive and stay rest for all your passwords which you can retrieve from logging in into online drive.
