There are cases where we forget passwords but are stored in our browsers or instant messenger. These passwords are hidden by * (Asterisk) and if we try to copy it to notepad or WordPad, it doesn’t reveal its original meaning. Today, I’m listing some free softwares to reveal those hidden asterisk passwords:
