How To Reveal Encrypted Passwords

pwd

Web Talk has demonstrated an effective way of retrieving saved but encrypted passwords.

I’m sure that you are all going to use this information responsibly. You know, to “remember” all those auto fill passwords saved on your computer.

For the small percentage (99%) of you that may use this information for other purposes, well happy stalking.

Here’s what to do.  First, goto any page where your password is autosaved and hidden beneath dots or asterisks.  If you don’t have any saved passwords, just type yours in.  Next, copy the code from step 3 on this page.  Finally, paste the code into your address bar, press enter and voila, you are now a hacker!  A text box with your password will appear.

This worked for me on Safari, Chrome and Firefox. My only issue was that a “n” was added to the end of my password each time. The code is written in JavaScript, so please use it at your own risk. Enjoy!

  1. it was a silly error in the javascript (a missed ‘\’) that caused the extra ‘n’ at the end. it was actually meant to be a newline character.

    guys, try to keep your passwords in your head. saving passwords is not good security at all. if anyone ever has access to your pc (physically or remotely) you are doomed!

    Thanks for explaining! I was wondering about that “n”
