A modern person today cannot do without passwords, but how do you remember them all? There are many sites and for each of them the keys can be different, it takes a long time to write out each one. Today you will learn how to view saved passwords on Android.
View passwords in the “Google” section
There are many settings in this tab that belong to your account. Here you can see the keys to the sites that you visited and on which you registered.
To enter this section, follow these steps:
- Open “Settings” on your device and go to the Google section.
- “Account Management”.
- We swipe to the left to skip the instructions.
- We click on the button “Click”.
- Scroll through the horizontal menu to the “Security” tab.
- Go down and select the “Password Manager” item. This is where passwords are stored for all sites on which you created them. Keys in this section can be encrypted with a fingerprint or Face ID.
- We open the search bar.
- Here you can enter the name of the site from which we want to find out the password.
- We confirm our biometric data for security purposes.
- A hidden password will open in front of you, click on the eye and it will open.
Checking passwords for strength
Admit it, you use the same password for almost all sites? It is not safe, having hacked data from one resource, fraudsters will be able to use your key for other sites. If you have created different passwords everywhere, then some of them may be weak and not secure. You can check their reliability by doing the following:
- We return to the section “Password Manager”, how to get there, described above, see from the first paragraph.
- Click on the item “Check password”.
- We click on the button “Go to the password check page”.
- Then “Continue”.
- We confirm our biometric data again.
- If your device does not have a scanner or face unlock, click on the “Use key” section and follow the prompts.
- Then wait a little while the system analyzes your passwords and gives the result. After that, you will see a list of sites where the keys are weak or where they are repeated.
- Click “Password has been stolen. Change your password now. “
- Then “Change password”.
- We are waiting for the selected site to appear on the screen. When this happens, enter a new password and confirm it. Follow the instructions that appear in front of you.
If you want to avoid having duplicate passwords, use Google’s password generator. A password generator is a common program that randomly uses different, unique combinations of numbers and letters. Such passwords are very difficult to crack, they look something like this: “1I28gJ02M”, remembering them is also not easy, therefore the key generator is often used in conjunction with a password manager.
You can view your keys directly in the browser you are using. For this:
- Open your browser.
- Click on the three dots in the upper right corner.
- Open “Settings”.
- Further “Passwords”.
- You can see them at the bottom of the window that opens.
- Open your browser and click on the Opera logo below.
- We go to “Settings”.
- Section “Confidentiality”.
- Click on the “Passwords” item.
- In the new window, select “Saved Passwords”.
- Open your browser and click on three dots.
- We go to “settings”.
- Further “My data”.
- Here we select “Personal data manager”.
- Click on “Passwords”.
- After that, we can see the login data from the desired site.
- Open your browser and click on the three dots in the lower right corner.
- Click on the “Settings” tab and go to the “Logins and Passwords” section.
- Next “Saved Logins”
- We go through identity confirmation through biometric data, select the desired site and look at the password that we were looking for.
As you can see, the principle of viewing is the same everywhere, only the name of the tabs changes. Therefore, it is very easy to view passwords and no additional software is required. All these steps will take you no more than 5-10 minutes. Even the older generation, according to our instructions, will be able to find the lost password. We do not recommend using third-party software, since the system functionality is quite enough, and third-party applications can steal your login data and transfer it to others.
