I have Prestigio Tablet with ICS. I forgot a password from important site. It's remembered in the tablet's browser. How can I see it without rooting the tablet?

    And this site doesn't have a password recovery mechanism?

There is no functionality to view saved passwords included in the stock browser.

The only method for retrieving passwords saved in the stock browser is to open the webview.db file (it's an sqlite database) in /data/data/com.android.browser and look at the password table (it's stored in the clear, no encryption or anything), but that requires root.


The best decision so far is: Download SQLite Database editor. (Root is required!)

Go to "Application Databases" Choose : Internet (with icon of Earth and small script com.android.browser /data/data/com.android.browser/databases/webview.db

Choose from TABLES - "password" Press SELECT*



You can try those 3 steps, using 2 devices (second must be rooted):

  1. use adb backup com.android.browser to create a backup of browser on your device

  2. use TitaniumBackup to restore to another device

  3. copy webview.db from /data/data/com.android/browser/databases/ and extract password from it.
