    Retrieving passwords, is it possible?
    Hello Mac Forums! I'm in dire need of your help. I was wondering if it is possible to access an internet cookie to retrieve a password from it. I didn't store it in a cookie but i logged into said site with the password and i have now forgotten the password. I don't want to reset, but retrieve the old password as it might be of use to me when i try to enter older site that i've registered for. This is for MY account, this is on MY macbook, nobody else has used it. I'd really appreciate the help.

    I didn't have passwords saved on my Safari. I'm running Safari 5.0 at the moment and under Keychain Access there is no passwords. Please help?

    Welcome to Mac-Forums!

    I don't think that any passwords get stored in cookies, it would be way to insecure.
    But you can look for yourself, in /Users/YOURS/Library/Cookies/Cookies.plist open it with TextEdit.

    The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.
