Over a period of time you most likely auto login to most sites due that your browser saves and auto inserts the username and password for you. The password is typically not revealed; instead you will see a row of dots or asterisks. The problem I have seen people do when they auto login; especially over long periods of time, is that they will forget the password or where they wrote the password down.
If you ever get into that situation, one solution is to download and run “Asterisk Password Spy”. Asterisk Password Spy works on wide range of platforms starting from Windows XP to new Windows 10 and can help you to easily find (and record) the passwords from any Windows based application.
Here is how to use Asterisk Password Spy:
- Launch AsteriskPasswordSpy on your system
- Now simply drag the ‘search icon’ to any password box to reveal the passwords.
- When you place it over the password box, it will automatically highlight it and password is added to list as shown in the screenshot below.
- Finally you can save all recovered password list to HTML/XML/CSVfile by clicking on ‘Export’ button and then select the type of file from the drop down box of ‘Save File Dialog’.
