Hello,


I have been using the autofill feature in chrome to login to gmail for over a year. Yesterday I accidentally typed in the password field. Now it won't revert back to the original-correct password. The "show" feature in settings only shows the most recent (incorrect) entry. I do not remember the password. Is there any way I can force gmail to revert to using the correct password?

Thank you for your help

Have a good day

SOLVED. Kind of. I used a program called Nirosoft to retrieve the password. It did not produce\revert to the old password (it showed the last characters I typed in the field) but it displayed the date the password was added to the system. One of the recovery questions gmail asked is for the date the account was opened. So I used the date data in the Nirosoft report and answered the other questions best I could and they reset it for me. Thanks
