Are you talking about a program that will reveal the passwords used to access various sites on the internet ie: facebook, WoW etc.

If so, then, NO, we cannot recommend any program that will do that. For security reasons , we do not know that you are a genuine user who may have forgotten their password to facebook.

If you have difficulty managing your passwords, I suggest you set up a password manager to assist you in keeping all your passwords together in a safe place.
A good free one is Access Manager http://www.accessmanager.co.uk/ but there are many more...just google 'password manager'.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Good Luck,

Hope my advice wouldn't violate the rules, - here is the article in which it's described how to show saved passwords without using third-party software - http://www.raymond.c...assword-fields/

Hello Blowwish. I am afraid that the article will not help the user in the slightest since he / she probably wants to view the passwords that are already saved in the browser. Bruce, we are sorry but we cannot provide you any assistance regarding this matter as we can verify the legitimacy of your request. We sincerely regret that. :( -- Mohit

I guess I am confused, why does a window pop up saying do you want windows to remember your password, if it is nowhere to be found?

It is a mystery how MS has decided to make IE handle online passwords. It "could" be some token acknowledgment to "security". Firefox, considered by many to be more secure due to its restrictions and special handling of ActiveX script, makes online password directly available to the owner/user via Tools - Options - Security - Saved Passwords. How is that any more or less secure than how IE handles it? Mystery to me. Sorry, there is no good answer to your question, as far as I know. Doug
