  • Hi,

    Is there any way to show the masked-password in XShell particular account login?

    I have many VPS servers to maintain, and I didn’t save the credential login in a notepad or file, as it’s very risky. But, sometimes I forgot what the password is.

    Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you.


    • Hello Yanto,

      I am very sorry, but I am unaware of any way to do this. From what I can see, once it is masked there is no way to convert this to plain text again.
