How To View Forgotten Passwords In Mac OS

The Keychain application found on Mac OS X will store your login and password information and insert them in the required fields. There lies another problem. After some time, those passwords generated as “**********” are forgotten too.

Step 1: Navigate to your Applications > Utilities.
Step 2: Open Keychain Access.
Step 3: Verify ‘All Items’ is highlighted on the left.
Step 4: Type name of website of application in search box.
Step 5: Double click on searched item result.
Step 6: Place a check the ‘Show Password’ box.
The final step requires you to insert your login password. Hopefully, that’s a password you won’t need extra help remembering.
