Thread: Passwords

    Passwords

    I'm just wondering, but...

    When presented with a screen along the lines of "Present password for override" on a network security thingy in an internet browser, how can you find the password, and, subsequently, hide it again?

    /me thinks he threw in that last part about "hiding it again" so we wont realize that he has nothing but breaking into the site on his mind.

    Ummm..... yeah. if it's a website and you don't know the password (but are the user) than the admin is the only way to go. The password isn't going to be stored in clear text anywhere (if it's what im thinking and not some javascript based password protection). If it's something like an htaccess'd directory then the password is going to be encrypted and even the admin won't know what the plaintext password is so he's going to have to reset it for you.

    Hahaha, no. It's just a parental control device that is frustrating me.

    No worries.
