Using inspect element (IE) as a password cracker tool in any web browser to easily reveal the hidden saved passwords in the web browser. It’s a tool for web developers and especially used for live-edit the HTML and CSS of a webpage and more.

In this post, I will show you how to crack any stored password using IE on login webpages like Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, etc.

The Inspect Element (web development tools) is also the best tool for bloggers for finding errors and to implement blog customization. Using it anyone can inspect the page elements, style, and other things and edit that on the go.

It lets you see everything in a DOM tree.

Asterisks are for safety purpose to hide your typed passwords from straying eyes.

Whenever you type something on a password field, it automatically turns into the asterisks or bullet characters.

However, any of you ever wish to know the original keys behind those asterisks, here I have a trick for that. You don’t need to be a code-savvy guy to view hidden passwords in any browser. You can reveal hidden passwords like 123 without using any software, scripts, coding or add-on.

This is the easiest way to reveal asterisk password by just using inspect element – also a password cracker tool.

Use DevTools Elements As a Password Cracker Tool in Chrome

Google named IE as Chrome DevTools Elements.

If you are using Google Chrome and there is a password already saved on a login page, simply use the DevTools Element and it will quickly reveal the hidden passwords.

Let’s see how.

1. Go to the webpage where a password is already available in black dots or asterisk keys.

2. Select all characters of asterisk password and choose “Inspect element” by pressing right-click on selected characters.

See this illustration image:

3. It will open a dialog box with HTML source codes of that particular web page on which your password line will be highlighted (refer below screenshot).

4. Here you will see the magic. Just double-click on “password” under the “type” attribute (type=”password”) and rename it with “text” then hit enter.

Once you rename “password” with “text”, the hidden password will be disclosed.
