Steam – Read saved steam password


Is there any way to "read" a saved steam password?

I have my password set in steam for ages and recently I wanted to log into my account from my mobile device, but I just cant remember my password so far.

In addition I want to upgrade to Windows 10 the next days but before I do that I need to know my steam password.

Anyway to do this?

Only an extremely poorly-written program will provide a way to view its own stored password1, as this is a major security risk. If you could view your saved password, then it could also be accessed by a remote user over the network.

Since your password is currently saved in Steam, the best course of action is to first verify that the email address associated with your Steam account is one to which you have access, then do a password reset, and remember what you change it to.

1 While it is true that browsers allow you to view the passwords you've saved for websites, they do not allow you to view the password used to log into the browsers themselves. This is what I mean by "its own stored password".
