I use google chrome and the passwords are not available on the under the hood option even when i know i clicked saved and i need to find out the password to a particular site, however the email i signed up with became hacked a while ago so i was asking is it possible to recover all passwords that i have used on my laptop even if not stored in the manage password area. Some help would be really appreciated. x

Unlike Firefox I don't think that you can view the actual password in Chrome.

SIW will show some passwords.

If you Install LastPass, it asks to go and get all your passwords that it can find and keep them in the 'Vault'.

When you login to LastPass and open your Vault, you can Edit any of your sites and Show Password.

(Write down your Master Password and keep somewhere convenient but away from computer.)

LastPass is the best Password Manager I have found, I also can recommend it. I use it as a Firefox Addon. I believe it will work with other browsers but do not know how to install it.
