View hidden password in Web forms

Issue

You have provided the password to a Web form and the password has been saved by your browser but is shown as masked. You have forgotten the password and need to gain access to it.

Resolution

Navigate to the Web Form with the masked password by using any major Web browser. Right click on the HTML field with the masked password and choose “Inspect element”.

When the HTML Editor opens, look for input type = “password” field and change “password” to “text” and press Enter to save. Revert your changes in the HTML element after you have taken note of the clear text password.
