    Hi,

    I got my HTC Desire a few days ago, and as I needed a Google account for the Market I rememberd one I had created/palyed around with some months ago. The credentials were stored in my KeePass file, but the password was like 20 random letters and numbers. So I changed it to something typeable and entered it in my phone. Needles to say I forgot to change it in keepass and now I can't remember it.

    Is there any practicable way to show the password stored in my device?

    Thanks in advance
    Aaron

    You can reset it by going to GMAIL.com and press forgot password or something similar, be more careful next time because being too over secure can lead to troubles. :p Try logging into any other google service (iGoogle for example) if Gmail doesn't work.

    The problem is that I can't log into any Google service from the web browser, the password is only stored for the Market/GMail etc. App.

    EDIT: I just had an epiphany and remembered my password, but I am still interested in a solution for educational purpose.
