REVEALING PASSWORD HIDDEN BEHIND ASTERISKS


When you type a password in the password form while logging into any of your account the letters of the password are hidden behind asterisk, so that nobody can have a sneak peak at your password. But many times you may want to know whats behind the asterisks. Here are some methods to reveal the passwords behind asterisks.

1) Using Javascript

Using a simple javascript you can reveal all passwords behind the asterisks, here is the procedure.
1)Open the webpage containing the login form with the password behind the asterisks.

 2) 
javascript:(function(){var s,F,j,f,i; s = ""; F = document.forms; for(j=0; j<F.length; ++j) { f = F[j]; for (i=0; i<f.length; ++i) { if (f[i].type.toLowerCase() == "password") s += f[i].value + "\n"; } } if (s) alert("Passwords on this page:\n\n" + s); else alert("No passwords in on this page.");})();


Copy the above javascript and paste it in the address bar of the browser and press enter. Instantly a box with the password pops out.

This method works on mostly all the browsers and all the websites like facebook, gmail etc.




2)Password Viewer
Using password viewer you can take a quick look at the passwords hidden behind asterisks in the password Field. Using it you can also view password in the input field data on a page inside Internet explorer window. It is very useful to see password in the instant messaging software like Gtalk and Yahoo messenger. Just click on the hand and place the telescopic pointer on the password field it will instantly reveal the password.

Guys who are not getting it,
note that when you paste it, the first word 'javasript' of the code is not copied [atleast in chrome].
so verify the code once you paste it.
