WebBrowserPassView v1.80 Updated

billon on 30 Jun 2016
  • 387KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 29 Jun 2016
  • Suggested by guinness

WebBrowserPassView is a password recovery tool that reveals the passwords stored by Internet Explorer (Version 4.0 - 11.0), Mozilla Firefox (All Versions), Google Chrome, Chromium, Safari, Opera, SeaMonkey and Yandex Web browser. This tool can be used to recover your lost/forgotten password of any website, including popular Web sites, like Facebook, Yahoo, Google, and GMail, as long as the password is stored by your Web Browser.

Currently, WebBrowserPassView cannot retrieve the passwords if they are encrypted with a master password.

To work with Chrome and Opera portable versions, go to 'options' and set the location of the portable browser folder. Select the user data folder in Chrome, and wand.dat for Opera. (Thanks to user "deer".)

Portable browser e.g. Firefox's passwords can be viewed by manually setting Options->Advanced Options:
For example,
Firefox Profile=D:\Firefox\Data\profile
Firefox Installation=D:\Firefox\App\Firefox

Irfanview is one of the oldest, but still one of the best programs of its type. Does just about everything, its fast and very lightweight, and even works from the command-line.
