Reveal the password in a password field on a web page
Authored by: Frederico on Mar 31, '11 12:13:30PM

I find the Search Keychains (Spotlight) feature in Keychains to be stunningly precise in its ability to use disparate keywords and I can find a given key in seconds.

Command-Space; type 'keych'; press enter; focus is already on Search Keychains; type partial root domain and/or part of account name; press enter; get results. Easy peasy.

Definitely not faster than ShowPass and the like, but I've gotten over the want to add reams of extensions and troubleshooting it brings along with it.

However, this hint is not reflective of my usual need for Keychain Access; that is generally when a website presents me with a new page or design where my Keychain/Safari fails to recognize the request and I have no clue what to enter at all.

I don't know how useful this hint is for an honest user, but it is certainly disconcerting to realize how simple a keychain can be overridden if you have access to the screen; this is something I will have to advise additional users who share accounts.

Searching keychains with Spotlight is a great hint in and of itself. Thanks!
