    Password Auto Complete Forgot Password

    Does anyone know how to retrieve a password from autocomplete. I am being asked to change a password but I have to put the old password in first and I don't know what it is. It is in auto complete but I don't know how to get the actual password to reveal thanks

    Hello Richadrao, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You might see if you may be able to use an option in the tutorial below to reset your password. It's against the forum rules to help reveal what your current password is.

    In don't want anyone to reveal my password. I have a website that I have auto completed om IE 11. The site is work related and its asking me to change my password, To do so I have to enter my current password or I cant update it so I'm a bit stuck. I am just wondering if anyone knew how I could find the password I heard there was a way through my computer on the stored auto complete passwords to get it. I have logged onto my work site for the past year on auto complete and I actually forgot the password.

    I see. You left that bit of information out that it's for a website instead of Windows.

    Usually a site will have a "Forgot password" link to click on where you would log in at. This would send you an email that'll allow you reset the password.

    I'll move your thread to the proper forum area now to help.
