Looking up Passwords used in Browsers

by | Jun 30, 2018 | Random Info, Technical Help

Luckily, some browsers allow you to look up your passwords.

These browsers can usually import passwords from browsers that cannot display them. Doing this allows one to view and even copy the stored passwords. If you do not know your password, many times you will have to reset it. You can do that at most login pages. However, it is much easier to find the password, if you can, especially if you log in from different machines or devices and have saved it on them.

If you do not know your password – but use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome browsers – you can look up your password in those browsers.

Mozilla Firefox:
– Open a new tab, and in it type or copy and paste: about:preferences#privacy
– Under Forms & Passwords click on Saved Logins…
– Click on Show Passwords
– Find the one you need by the test site’s name
– Copy the password and paste it into the new login page

Google Chrome:
– Open a new tab, and in it type or copy and paste: chrome://settings/passwords
– View the desired password for the test site’s name
– Chrome requires that you type in your Windows username and password to complete this
– Copy the password and paste it into the new login page

If you use (or have passwords stored in) Internet Explorer and have Firefox or Chrome on your machine, you can import your saved passwords from Internet Explorer directly into either of them. Then you can view them.

If you use Microsoft Edge and have Firefox on your machine, you can import your saved passwords from Microsoft Edge directly into Firefox. Then you can view them.

Note: Chrome does not allow you to import passwords directly from Microsoft Edge into it. You can, however, import passwords from Firefox into Chrome if you need or prefer them there.

Google Chrome:
– Open a new tab, and in it type or copy and paste: chrome://settings/autofill
– Click on the right arrow after “Import bookmarks and settings”
– Choose “Microsoft Internet Explorer” and make sure “Saved Passwords” is checked
– Click the “Import” button
– Use the procedure above under Chrome to see if the username/account and its password is in there

Mozilla Firefox:
– Under Forms & Passwords click on Saved Logins…
– Click on the “Import” button in the lower right of the dialog box
– Choose either “Microsoft Edge” or “Internet Explorer” to import from
– Ensure “Saved Passwords” is checked and click “Next”
– Click “Finish” when it’s done
