    I have a username and password saved in Safari that has been saved with the autofill feature. I didnt have the "save username and passwords" checked off in preferences but it saved this one anyways since I guess I either clicked the "remember me" box on the site or it just thinks its a form. Anyways, the password is censored out, but I want to know what it is. I've read that the utility "keychain access" has passwords stored in it but I only have about 15 or so passwords saved in there and they're mostly router passwords. Can anyone help me?

    If you copy and paste the starred out password and paste it in an app like word or textedit, it should change back to numbers and letters.
