Inspect element on a web browser.[edit source]
So often we go to a webpage that allow us to log in using an username and password via different browsers. For instance: With G-mail log in page after I type my username and password, at that moment before logging in to the mail account if I right click on the password field to inspect element on the browser(Google Chrome) I see something like this <input id="Passwd" name="Passwd" type="password" placeholder="Password" class="">. Now on the type field if I change the "password" to "text" it actually reveals the password instead of asterisks. By following this step people can easily acquire our valuable information from the web browser.
- tl;dr: It should be possible to implement this using additional technology but it is not worth it at all. It is of much more use that passwords get transmitted (as a hash by client-side) through a fully encrypted connection.--Onse (discuss • contribs) 13:22, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
