The majority of internet browsers “mask” user’s password fields by simply using asterisks as their means of security. Utilizing a browsers “key chain” means you can save them, thus saving you future headaches of always having to remember them. But, on the off chance that your password didn’t save, this trick is great to keep in your back pocket to see beyond the “masK”.

Its super easy, just follow the 3 steps:

Step #1

Go ahead and open a website of choice where you know you typically have it on your keychain. Right-click on the password field and scroll down to Inspect.

Step #2

Once your browsers HTML Editor opens, look for an input type = “password” field buried in the code, then all you have to do is change it from “password” to “text” and press Enter to save.

Step #3

That’s it! just remember to re-fresh the browers window again in order to change the “type” back to password, just for security reasons.
