How to find the password in characters dotted browser!

Hello friends! You know that moment when they access a service or a web page, the browser automatically completes us we username and password?
Well, how is it saving the browser option to save time and quickly log on to our websites visited enterior, as it is dangerous and can leave us without accounts if the PC we use is access someone decided to steal account passwords.
By the method outlined in the tutorial video anyone can see us in clear text password that automatically completes browser when you visit a web site or service. Although this weakness they have existed for a long time and in all modern browsers, one of the producers of Mozilla, Microsoft and Google have not addressed and not taken seriously even today this problem.
Without additional software, without complicated steps, anyone can see the password in the "Password" or "Password" field when the browser automatically fills them in when accessing a previously accessed service or website. All you need is the browser that you or another person has previously used to log in to one of the services or websites, a right mouse click in the "Password" or "Password" field and the replacement of a word.
At the same time, this method can be a lifesaver for us if we no longer know what password we set for one of the accounts made in the past. We can use it to see what is under the stars filled in automatically by the browser in the "Password" field and so we recovered our password for that account. However, the same method can be dangerous for us and can lead to loss of accounts if other people who have access to our computer put it into practice.
What can we do to protect ourselves against this method of losing accounts?
- never log in / access accounts on devices that do not belong to you
- if you let other people use your computer, secure your account with a password and create a Guest account with limited rights. Log in, access the Guest / Guest account and only after completing these steps allow other people access to your computer. If you do not know how to create a Guest / Guest account and password the Administrator account in Windows, we have made a video tutorial on the topic in the past Security, create and modify user accounts in Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7
- if you are forced by circumstances and you must access your account from foreign devices or browsers, use the following browser modes:
InPrivate Browsing for Internet Explorer
left click wheel mechanics in the top right> Safety> InPrivate Browsing or press Ctrl + Shift + simultaneously P
New incognito window for Google Chrome
Left click on the top right menu button (three lines located one above the other)> New incognito window or press Ctrl + Shift keys simultaneously + N
New window without trace in Mozilla Firefox
Left click on the top right menu button (three lines located one above the other)> without trace new window or press simultaneously Ctrl + Shift + P
Using these modes, the browser will not ask if you want to save your password and account data, history and cache your session will automatically delete InPrivate Browsing mode exit, New incognito window or new window without trace.
In the end I can only hope that in the near future major manufacturers of browsers will be taken more seriously and will address this major issue in a more responsible way the browser security and allow users access to these items that can leave you accounts in seconds.

    Hello, I would like to tell me what can we do if the browser does not display the saved passwords, because sometimes my firefox not displayed.

    • Passwords are "saved" in two ways.

      1. In browser when you are asked if you want the browser to remember your password.
      2. The cookie that is stored in cache. Here goes password if emptying your browser cache.

      My advice is to disable browser password manager and use LastPass master password set to ask you each time you open your browser. In that case you are safe even if someone has access to your PC.

  8. Very interesting and helpful tutorial.
