    hey there my mom gave me her s6 today because my phone broke, her phone is all filled with her photos and configured with her google account paswords and everything so id love to reset it. and turn it into my own phone

    how ever her someone has logged in on her phone on instagram and the pasword is saved in there (her litle nies) she asked me to keep it on there so she can keep on seeing what shes up to,

    i really dont feel like keeping it on there or seeing what ever she chats with her friends pop up on my phone every now and than, she herself is moving to an iphone so i cant just use titanium backup and transfer it

    is there a way i could extract the paswords like many of the rooted wifi pasword crackers i mean the phone must have got it saved somewhere ?

    ive put this in rooted cause i asume i will have to root the phone before il be able to ?

    Most correctly-designed apps will not store a user's password in a plaintext or otherwise-accessible format for just this reason. They'd likely instead only transmit the username/password to the authentication server once, and then store an encrypted authentication token locally.

    You could probably use something like Titanium Backup or even Helium (which wouldn't require root) to transfer the logged-in Instagram to another Android phone, but that obviously won't work if she's going to an iPhone.

    if annyone reads this in the future this did not solve the problem in this case instagram blocks helium from backing up the app probertly cause it knows im trying to steal the pasword kind of i have not rooted the device and installed titanium if i decite to do so and it will solve it i will post it
