In Windows, if you open Manage password in Chrome, then it asks for a master password (i.e. Windows Admin password) to view and manage your passwords. But that's not the case in Android. So for security purposes, Chrome for Android doesn't reveal the password. From Greenbot: Saving your passwords to your device presents some obvious security issues. ...

At least for me, it was actually the device password - used to unlock the phone. So basically it asks for the device password when you try to add a new Google account for some reason. I formatted my phone thinking something else was the issue - but if you enter the device password, it then asks for the account name as normal.

It is not possible for an user to disable autocomplete for a single site. You can check this link to disable the feature on Chrome (all sites) - it is a simple tutorial on how to do it. However, for a single site, unless you are the website's developer and don't want your users to have this feature, you can't. But, if you are, you can check this ...

Note: This method requires root access. The credentials of the websites that you allowed Chrome to save are stored in the file Login data which is located inside the data directory of Chrome i.e. /data/data/com.android.chrome/app_chrome/Default/. Certainly, no app or even ADB can access that location and neither Chrome has any provision through GUI to ...

From Android Security Internals: An In-Depth Guide to Android's Security : Android doesn’t have a dedicated setting to manage the encryption pass- word after the device is encrypted, and changing the screen lock password or PIN will also silently change the device encryption password. This is most probably a usability-driven decision: most users ...

If you know for sure your phone can be powered on, then there might just be another doable (albeit technical) way. I've extracted photos and contacts from another S4 of my classmate a while ago using this. I'll describe it and let you decide whether you can handle it. While in the blind, get to Download Mode by using the key combo. Load a custom recovery ...

When locking a device using Android Device Manager it replaces the previous "Screen lock" with a password. Once you have entered the password you can follow these steps to remove/replace the screen lock: Go to Settings > Security > Screen lock Enter the password you entered via Android Device Manager Choose your new screen lock method (Pattern, Slide, PIN ...

With your tablet off, press and hold the volume up (+) button and power button until you see the RCA splash screen with Nipper and Chipper. Release both buttons to reveal the Android bot on his back with a caution symbol above him. ...

There is most likely a problem with the phone's /efs/ss_data file. I think it's basically a key for decryption of your Wi-Fi passwords and other things in secure storage. Root is required for this fix. First we need to confirm it's a problem with secure storage. Install BuildProp Editor from Play Store Set ro.secure.storage=false Reboot, setup Wi-Fi &...

Search and download Unlocker or Screen Lock Bypass app from internet (which are no longer available in Play Store). Push it to the system from recovery (with update.zip). Start the system.

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 trick here is to use a keyboard app with pasting ability. I had success using both Hacker's Keyboard (It has a CTRL screen that you can combine with v to paste), and Swype (long pressing on the +!= key and then in the four arrows key provides a screen where you can paste).

In my case it was necessary to change the owner and group of the file to wifi: mount -o rw,remount /system chown wifi:wifi /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf ls -la /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf -rw-rw---- wifi wifi 2343 2016-07-11 10:31 wpa_supplicant.conf Note: you need a rooted device to do that.

Another way to do this (e.g. if you use a sync password and passwords.google.com is not an option) is by turning debug mode on, inspecting the tab, and printing the value of the field at the console (e.g. document.getElementById('passwordFieldID').value;) Link for remote debugging: https://developer.chrome.com/devtools/docs/remote-debugging

From the commit comment max password length symbols is limited only for UI reasons. Maybe there is no other reason which requires the lockscreen password to be up to 17 symbols (16+1) EDIT: I created android build and tested with max password length 100 symbols and it is working for lock screen and also for encryption password Fix 2504863: Use password min/...

In case there is a problem with the on-screen keyboard most devices support to use an USB keyboard connected via USB On-The-Go (OTG) adapter to the phone - if the phone supports USB OTG at all. The simpler an USB keyboard is the more likely it will work - keyboards with integrated USB hub and/or readers for smartcard or sd-card often cause problems and may ...

Your password certainly shouldn't be being stored in plain text, although without reviewing the exact software your phone is running I can't rule the possibility out. More likely, when you set the password, it checked which characters are used and set a flag (in the plain-text portion of the system where the boot code and device unlock functionality live) ...

A quick bit of experimentation shows that they will be able to view your cached Gmail, but will not be able to download new mail.

According to the manual for your tablet, there should be a "Reset" button. Try holding it while powering on the tablet and see if it boots into special mode (recovery) that lets you perform a reset.

Multi-User was added with Android 4.2 -- you're running 4.0, so there's no native way to go multi-user without upgrading your system. If you have your device rooted, you might want to take a look at SwitchMe Multiple Accounts, which works with Android 2.1 and up. With Android 4.1, you could make use of the User Management app. Both would enable you to have ...

I am able to receive reset links despite having logged in today, yesterday and pretty much every day. However you should be able to access your account on your phone (as it will use your login details to sign in to chrome) then use that to add your phone number to your account. Then pick reset my password with my phone which will send an SMS to your phone.

I spent three hours on the phone with Google yesterday for the same issue. They said there is no way to reset the password. They said I have to delete and add the user back, losing all data, pictures, game progress, etc. There is also no way to prevent a child from setting a password. Clearly the people at Google have not thought this through. It is ...

Try to revoke access to that account from your phone -- or simply from Hangouts/Talk if it is listed -- through this page. When you add a new account to Hangouts, Android automatically adds it to your globally accessible accounts (Settings > Accounts). As far as I know, there is no way to activate temporary log-in sessions.

Use wpa_supplicant's wpa_passphrase tool to create your own "real" psk. Actually, the plain-text psk (double-quoted) must be processed at every startup and config reload to generate the real, 64 hex-digit (256-bit) psk. So, using wpa_passphrase to manually create the fully-processed PSK actually optimizes wpa_supplicant's startup & config reload time. :) ...

I got a solution: Go to root browser Go to /etc/secure_storage/.system.wpa_supplicant then delete this folder (only ".secure.supplicant.conf"), then reboot. Strange number gone Note: It only works for Samsung devices, all saved WiFi hotspots will be lost for the first time.

Using this method won't work for you, since /data is not accessible except after acquiring root permissions. But if you can root your device, try this afterwards: adb shell su # allow it from phone if required cp /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf /sdcard/ exit adb pull /sdcard/wpa_supplicant.conf Sorry but AFAIK this can't be done without root.

First, have a look at the answers to this question. If none if them works for you and you have access to the recovery, I think you can only wipe data / factory reset your device. If you don't have access to the recovery, you can still factory reset the device via fastboot with fastboot erase userdata. Factory resetting your device will delete your data ...

I am assuming she either set a new pin/password for you by mistake or you already had a pin/password before she locked it that you cannot remember. Either way you need to reset the pic/password. Here are the instructions for Android 4.4 which you are using: "Older versions of Android — Android 4.4 KitKat and older — have an integrated way to bypass your ...

You can delete it ('Forget') and create it new again, here you can define the password. Write down the SSID (Routers name) and encryption way (e.g. WPA) before you delete it ;) Without root you cannot view or edit the /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf file (this is the path on Android CM13), where the network configs are saved. That means ssid, passwords (...

Generally I would say that both are secure. FreeOTP: Developed by Fedora by RedHat. So by a prop. company. But it's open source for everyone, that means if there would leaks to RedHat the FLOSS-Community would reported that to F-Droid and News Pages. That would a big scandal for RedHat and many people would lose trusting Fedora. Second, it's unmaintained. ...
