    I forgot a password in an android app. The app opens fine, so the password is correct. I just cant read it because there are periods where the numbers are. They do this for safety reasons. In Windows its easy to read behind the dots or astericks. How do i find my password for this app? As a side note, changing the security setting on the phone doesn't fix this problem.

    If the app itself doesn't offer an option to view the password then there's no way to do so, as far as I know.

    There's not a way that I know of. But can't you just use the forgot password system for whatever app/service this is?
