Huge Security Alert! All User Passwords Are Visible on Google Chrome!
If your default browser is Chrome and you save passwords try this little trick…
You’ll get this:
Now click that little blue button that says “Show”…SURPRISE! There’s your password in plain text for anyone to read.
Yup, if you leave your computer unguarded anyone can come along and get all the user names and passwords to your favorite websites.
It’s been like that since 2008 when Chrome was first released. And yes, Google is aware of it but doesn’t consider it a problem and has no intention of changing it.
