Rate this post

Whenever you log into Facebook, you never enter the password of your user account because you have saved the login data on all the devices you use: your smartphone, your tablet and your computer (so these are entered automatically). It’s a great convenience, no doubt about it. Too bad, however, that by doing so, over time, you may run the risk of forgetting your password, by dint of never typing it.

How do you say? The situation you find yourself in now is precisely this and you are wondering “how can I see my Facebook password” ? I knew it! In the end it really happened! Well, if you want, I can give you a hand to try to cope with it, but the result is not always obvious. If you give me a few minutes of your precious time, then, I can try to provide you with some possible solutions to the problem.

I anticipate immediately that what I am going to suggest you to do will be, in fact, peek through the login data saved on your devices, in order to be able to view the access information to the famous social network in clear text. If, by doing so, you are unable to retrieve the details you need, I will also explain how to reset your Facebook password and, for the sake of completeness, also how to change it. But now just chat and let’s take action. I wish you, as usual, happy reading and I wish you the best of luck for everything.

See the Facebook password from smartphones and tablets

Are you wondering “how can I see my Facebook password” on a smartphone or tablet ? Then follow the instructions on what to do, for what concerns Android and iOS , which you can find below. As mentioned at the beginning of the guide, to obtain the information in question, you have to go and retrieve any access credentials saved in the browsers and in the social network app itself. To find out more, read on.

Android

If you are using a smartphone or tablet equipped with  Android , to be able to trace your Facebook password you can rely on  Smart Lock , a special function enabled on the mobile platform of the “green robot” when the Google account is connected to the device in use and thanks to which it is possible to memorize the login data to automatically access Internet sites and apps (as well as view the latter, if necessary).

That said, to use it for your purpose, take your smartphone or tablet, unlock it, access the drawer (the screen of the device where the icons of all the applications installed on it are grouped) and tap the Settings icon ( the one with the gear ).

In the new screen that you see at this point, presses the Google entry and the wording Smart Lock for password . Next, tap on the Google Account link  that you find in the Saved passwords section .

On the Web page that will open, enter your Google account login credentials and, once logged in, locate the Saved Passwords section . You will then find a list of Internet sites for which you have chosen to save the relevant access data.

Then search facebook.com and, if present, presses on the eye symbol that you find in correspondence with the domain, in order to view the password of your account in clear text. If you want, you can help you in identifying Facebook among the various sites for which you have saved the login data by searching by keyword, after tapping on the magnifying glass icon .

How to see passwords saved on iPhone

Both on iPhone and iPad (as well as on Mac) there is a system for saving login data to Internet sites and apps, called iCloud Keychain , which roughly recalls the operation of the aforementioned Android Smart Lock . The system in question, which works only on iOS (and macOS), belongs to iCloud  (as can be understood from the name itself) and can also be used to try to trace the password of the Facebook account.

So, take your Apple-branded device, unlock it, access the home screen and press the Settings icon (the one with the gear ). In the new screen that you see at this point, tap on the  Password and account item (on iOS 14 and later you need to go to Password ), then on that App and website password and unlock access to the credentials saved through Face ID, Touch ID or code.

In the new screen that you see, you will therefore be shown the list of all the Internet sites and applications for which you have chosen to save the login data. Therefore, locate facebook.com , if present, and press the domain to view the relative password in clear text. Et voila ! If you can’t find Facebook among the various sites and apps, you can help yourself by carrying out a direct search using the appropriate bar at the top.

If you are using an iPhone or iPad with an older version of iOS installed, the procedure to be implemented is slightly different to be able to view the passwords saved on the device. In fact, in this case, you have to tap on the Settings icon on the home screen, press on the Safari item in the screen that appears and on the wording Password that you find in the General section . The rest of the steps to be taken later are identical to those described above.
