Tuesday Tip: Retrieve your forgotten password without resetting!

Most of the time we have our passwords saved on a specific device.  However, there are times when we log on with another device and realize we have forgotten our password. Well, there’s no need to reset your password, because you can unmask the password to see the context.

Here’s how to unmask the password:

  • First Right click (or CTRL + click) the password box and select “Inspect Element.” This brings up the developer console.
  • Then On the line that starts with “input type=password” change the word “password” to “text.” You may need to double-click to make the field editable.

This will reveal your password.
