Find Forgotten Passwords in your Browser

Managing your passwords is never simple, and if you’re migrating to a new PC there may be a few that you’ve stored in your browser and forgotten in the sands of time.

If you need to find out what the password is open the login page in your browser and then run the following javascript:

 

Now enter the following code into the address bar. Make sure it’s in the address bar and not any search tool:

javascript:(function(){var%20s,F,j,f,i;%20s%20=%20%22%22; %20F%20=%20document.forms;%20for(j=0;%20j

You may need to type the words javascript: before pasting the content in on your browser, Chrome seems to drop the javascript: when you attempt to paste it in.

If you are looking for a better method of password storage, we recommend LastPass.com which works across browsers and workstations. If you’re looking for help setting this up, then feel free to get intouch.
