Hi all!
I need to get a password for a gmail account, the safari history on the iphone has been deleted but is there a way that the password can be found somewhere in the data on pc?
I have the TextPad program to view all the files but not sure what to search for :/
Can someone please help me?

Just go through the password reset process on gmail.com

The password would be encrypted on the PC. As recommended, just follow the forgot password flow for Gmail.

It's encrypted so even if you could find it you wouldn't be able to do anything with it.

If it's not your account get the account owner to run through the password reset.

Why are you trying to break in to someone else's Gmail account? Why not just ask them if you can have access?
