The easiest possible way to steal passwords from your friends using Google Chrome

Do your friends use Google Chrome?  Well, you are in luck!

If they have ever used that "remember password" feature in Google Chrome, you can get a list of sites they use, and all their passwords in just a couple clicks.  The good news is that Google has admitted that this is how it's intended to work, and does not consider this a problem.  They will not change how it works to protect you or your friends -- so go nuts.

Here's how you do it (in 15 seconds, without any special tools or skills required):

1) Open up their Google Chrome settings on your friends computer while they are getting a coffee

2) Click on the "Manage Passwords" link in the "Advanced / Passwords and Forms" section

3) You are done.  Click the "show" button on each password
