Password Spectator

CNET Editors' review

View hidden passwords on many dialog boxes with this utility, but don't expect it to work for all Web sites as promised.

Password Spectator's interface is really a dialog box that gives instructions for using the program. It's a slightly convoluted operation. Hold the Control key and float your mouse to the password. Press the secondary mouse button to display your password in a separate window. The program worked for all Windows-based password dialogs, but failed to reveal passwords on the major e-mail Web sites we tried.

This is a freeware tool, and some users may not mind the multiple steps needed to reveal passwords. However, we have found numerous freeware applications that outperform this utility. While anyone from novice users to system administrators could use Password Spectator, you might want to spend a little extra time testing other application in this category.
