Chrome is undoubtedly one of the best browsers in the world. It's fast and available for a variety of platforms, from computers to mobile devices. One thing that distinguishes it is, without a doubt, the many features it makes available to users. One allows us to store passwords securely. But do we need to recover them? How can we do it on Google Chrome Android?
Google Chrome Android: recover your saved passwords!
Open Google Chrome Android on your smartphone. Then click on the three dots in the upper right corner and choose settings. Then find the option Passwords and click there. There you will be able to see everything that is saved in your browser. Eventually it will be a surprise. Click on the website or tool for which you need to see the password. Then in the new window just click on the symbol that represents an eye. Later, to get your hands on this information, you will need to authenticate yourself and you will immediately see the password.
Undoubtedly a good way to get our hands on passwords saved on Google Chrome Android.
But there are also tricks for the computer!
As you can see in the image below we have the username, in this case a test and just below we have the password itself and obfuscated. Now, if we wanted to start using the app on our smartphone and not remember the password that is stored in the browser, was it a problem? But it is very easy for us to recover.
For that purpose, we just have to click over that obscured field and choose the option to inspect.
Then, in the window that opens and more specifically inside elements, different code appears. In one of the lines you can see type = ”password”. Now by clicking on that same field we can change the text. That said, it is necessary to change from password to text. The final line is then type = ”text”.
And then, as you can see below, we can already see the password that was stored there. That is, nothing difficult and works with any type of website.
In Firefox it is exactly the same. In practice what changes is the graphic aspect. In Safari, the popular Apple Browser applies the same principle.
But there is another method that can be used to verify all passwords that we have stored in Chrome.
In the browser click on the three dots on the right side. Then choose the Settings option.
Then in the Passwords section, under the main Autofill section you will find everything you are looking for.
You can download the browser at Google Play Store.
