You know sometimes some specific websites might be blocked by your ISP and you cannot access them from your internet connection in such cases you might want to use a VPN to open the blocked websites. But what if you don't readily have a VPN installed on your device you can use Google Translate to access the blocked websites, yes Google Translate can be used as a VPN too.

Click on the website URL and you will be taken to a web page that displays your website within it you can browse the website however you wish in any language but the only thing is you will not be able to download files from the websites you're accessing with this method.
3. View any saved password without entering the Admin password
When you're saving passwords for websites on your browser these passwords stick around and automatically get filled up in the password field and whenever you are visiting that particular website from your browser now these passwords are not in clear-text because they're masked with either Asterix or dots now. In order to see the clear text form of these passwords, you can go to your browser settings and click on Password but in order to reveal these, the browser asks you to enter the admin password of the computer. Now, what if you don't know the admin password or simply don't want to enter the admin password here is a simple trick to see the clear text form of the saved passwords go to the website which saved password you want to see how you can see that the password is automatically filled in the password field by the browser but the password is obviously masked. Highlight the masked password right click and select inspect element now you will see some HTML code with some portion of the code highlighted this is the code that is responsible for the password field. Simply look for the attribute that says type and change it from password to text and hit enter that's it you have successfully unmasked the saved password this works on any website and on any browser.
