How to get your browser to fess up its saved passwords

Not a lot of people know this, but most web browsers that have the facility to remember passwords for you also have the ability to tell you what they are.

Here are the instructions for some popular browsers:

Chrome on PC
  • Go the the menu at the top right and pick Settings.
  • Scroll down to find "Show advanced settings".
  • Under Privacy, and Passwords and forms, click Manage passwords.
  • Find winsfordasc.co.uk
  • Right click the password and press Show.
Chrome on Android

This might only work if you're signed in with a Google account...

  • Go the the menu at the top right and pick Settings.
  • Click on "Save passwords".
  • Click "View and manage saved passwords at...".
  • Follow the instructions.
Safari on iOS (iPhone etc.)

I've not tested this 'cos I'm not an iPhone person...

  • Open the Settings app.
  • Scroll down and tap Safari.
  • Under the General section, tap Passwords.
  • Use Touch ID to sign in, or enter your four-digit code if you don't use Touch ID.
  • Scroll down and find winsfordasc.co.uk
  • Press and hold the password tab to copy it.
Microsoft Edge on Windows 10

Again, totally untested but...

  • Right-click the Windows Start button usually at the bottom left of your screen.
  • Pick "Control Panel"
  • In the search box at the top right start typing "credentials"
  • You should see "Manage Web Credentials" appear  under "Credential Manager". Click "Manage Web Credentials".
  • In the list of Web Passwords, find winsfordasc.co.uk
  • Click the little down arrow on the right hand side.
  • Next to the blanked out password, press "Show".
  • Type in your Windows password when asked.  (If you don't have a password set for Windows, then I don't know if you can get access to the passwords)

If you're using something different, then just please have a Google before asking us to reset your password. Thanks.
