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. ...

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 ...

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

I was also looking for the same but literally there is no such option. However, what Samsung's Official site suggests to do it, is: If you would prefer to use another browser as default from the messaging app - you can try searching the Google Play Store to download another messaging application. The Android Messages app, for example, defaults to open ...

It's not a perfect solution but it should help you out. Following preformatted text is a very simple script that can open a series of bookmarks which are tagged with a particular keyword. Each bookmark would be opened in the browser selected as default for the bookmark's URL type. Script #!/system/bin/sh list=/data/media/0/bms_list; keyword="$1"; browser="...

You'll be prompted to enter your lockscreen password or PIN if you have one, or your Google password if you don't have a lockscreen.

You don't need to scroll all the way to the top to see the URL field in the standard browser. At any point in the page just pull the screen down very slightly and it pulls the URL bar at the top down with it, it should then stay visible for about 2 seconds unless you tap in the bar. This is also the easiest way to access any other tabs that you've got open.

Is it normal behavior? Facebook app only handles specialized URL scheme fb:// and nothing more, so any standard HTTP/S Facebook links (http:// or https://) will be ignored by the app. So, yes, unfortunately this is normal. Is there a way to force it? As of current writing, until their developers implement a filter to handle HTTP protocol, there is no ...

EDIT: After using my original solution for a while, I came to the conclusion that it does not satisfy my needs: Using it to see and use the link URL took too much time. So I developed a new Android app with a single purpose, namely: Copying the link to the clipboard, and Display the link target in a toast. The app is available in Google Play as Copy Link ...

If you encrypt the hosts file, the system won't be able to read the file, so it won't work any more. But there's no need: since you need root access to edit the hosts file anyway, any app that you don't grant root access won't be able to edit the file.

These days, browsers on mobile devices, use one bar for searching with an search engine and inserting a specific URL request of web site. What you need to do is simple tell them "Touch top bar/address bar and insert this specific URL" or "Insert this URL in the bar and send". You need to know that if the inserted text is a correctly formatted URL (protocol:/...

There are a large number of Proxy ...

The URL schema does not necessarily begin with a unique protocol. For example, if you click this link https://www.youtube.com/ with the YouTube app installed, you'll be prompted to open it in the app. AFAIK the Gmail app doesn't have a "supported links" defined, so you have no chance to make a link open in Gmail.

i'm sorry to tell you, it wont work. In the hostfile you can only set an IP-Adress of an domain manually. For example: I dont want that my pc always looks for IP-Adress for ilovethis.net. Or a better one: I have many photos, videos and audio on my homeserver. But i dont want to always type 192.168.178.178 (etc.) in my Browser. Yes! I would add an entry to ...
