    Hi My teengae 13 year old daughter has not been going to school and i have found out that she has been posting photos on the net of herself. I would like to know that she is ok and would like to check her hotmail,msn accounts.
    How do I retrieve passwords and yes she knows about keychain and skips it.

    Thanks for all your help.

    If we ignore the issues surrounding the privacy of your daughter...

    You probably can't. If she's aware of the keychain and has told Safari not to save the passwords to the keychain then they won't have been stored on the machine at all.

    Whilst I am loath to suggest it you could look at keyloggers which would log all keystrokes to a file. But I'd suggest talking to your daughter instead...

    I agree with Robbie re the privacy issue. I recommend approaching your daughter and explaining your concerns, although I appreciate this may be easier said than done.
