Many programs and web sites that remember our passwords are pretty handy. We just click OK or Login button ignoring the password fields showing the asterisks (****) covering the password. But what happens if we forget that password and need it again for something. We either didn’t write it down or forgot where it was written or saved somewhere else. That’s where Password Spectator comes in.
Password Spectator is a popular password revealer that is FREE and extremely easy to use. It has simple interface where you have to float your mouse to the password box, hold the Control key and press the secondary mouse button to display your password in a separate window – That’s it!
The program works for all Windows-based password dialogs, but not so successful in web forms. But still it’s way more better than other freeware password revealing applications out there.
To view a password:
1. Open the window containing the password you want to read.
2. Press and hold down the Ctrl key.
3. Move the mouse pointer to this password and press the left mouse button.
You can settle it down in system tray where it quietly waits for a press of Ctrl key + Left Mouse Click.
