    IE Autocomplete

    Hey, my friend forgot his password to a site and logs in because IE fills in his password for him. Well, is there a way he can find his password in plain text? I don't think those programs that remove asterisks will work because it's an HTML text box, not one within Windows. Any suggestions?

    Question Huh?

    If it's a resticeted credit card site you can call them and chage it or email them for info. What version of Windows? If it's Win95-98SE. You have a few options. So please post the version you are running.

    I run Windows 98 but my friend runs Win XP Pro. If you can, provide information on uncovering these passwords for both.

    There is a forgot password option -- which he just found -- but I'm still curious how to see passwords saved in IE Autocomplete.

    Sounds suspect to me, you trying to access your friends stuph by any chance? Or am I just being paranoid? If he forgot the pass to a site, he can always ask the site to email him the password.

    Valentino: Potentially, yes, but I don't know of any exploits right now that make it very easy to do.

    Others: There is something called SnadBoy's Revelation that will uncover the *s, but it, for some reason, just won't work on the autocomplete things for IE.
