A saved password can be easily viewed using a simple tweak in your browser’s console. Here is how you can do that.
1) Go to any site which have your saved password in it, I am taking example of Facebook here.
2) Now open your Browsers Console by right clicking on password field and selecting ‘Inspect’.
3) This will bring up the console window, now change the field ‘Type’ from ‘Password’ to ‘Text’ and hit enter.
Once you change the type to ‘Text’ and hit enter, you would be able to see the saved password.
This is a simple yet less known trick to reveal saved password from browser, go ahead and try it yourself.
