So I signed into my google account to check my privacy settings. I found a Feature called "Saved Passwords" which had in it about 50 various accounts which I have signed into and clicked "Save password". An example of this is shown below:
As you can see from the screenshot there is a small "Eye" icon which allows you to see the password in plaintext.
So there are two problems here from what I can see;
Firstly, If I can see my password plaintext does that mean my password is being stored unhashed somewhere, perhaps on a google server? which already sets alarm bells ringing and Secondly, If someone accessed my account they would unlock a goldmine of websites and their corresponding usernames and passwords.
So my question is: Is Googles saved passwords feature secure?
