Protected Storage Viewer allows you to view four types of passwords:

 Outlook passwords

 Auto complete passwords and HTML form fields in Internet Explorer
When you log into the Web site, Internet Explorer may ask you if you want to remember the password for the next time that you log into this Web site. If choose to remember the password, the user-name and the password are saved in the Protected Storage, and thus they can be revealed by this utility.

 Password-protected sites in Internet Explorer
