As we create more accounts on different social media channels and profiles on websites, it becomes harder to keep track of all our passwords. If a couple of decades ago, people remembered phone numbers and all their bank account passwords, all that went away when technology offered the options to store phone numbers and passwords.
However, sometimes it may happen that you need to remember a password, for example, the password of your Instagram account, if in case your phone or laptop is dead and you need to log into your account from a friend's device.
The only problem is that you have forgotten your password because you haven’t needed it ever since you created your account.
Of course, apps have the ‘Forgot your password’ option on the login screen. But, you might be wondering if it’s possible to find your Instagram password if you are already logged into Instagram.
In this post, we’ll show you how to find it without resetting your Instagram password both on iPhone and Android devices, as well as a desktop.
If you ever needed to find your Instagram password while you’re logged in, the first place that would come to mind would be the Instagram app or web. Unfortunately, Instagram doesn’t show you the password even if you are logged into your account.
There is a logical explanation for this. If your phone was ever stolen or a friend borrowed it, they’d be able to see your password if they looked in the Instagram app. That’s why, for security reasons, Instagram doesn’t show you the password in the app and the web version.
But, don’t worry - resetting your password isn’t the only viable option for you.
If you saved your password in your Google account when you first logged into your Instagram account, you can easily recover it from your Android or desktop/laptop, while on iPhone, you can find it in your phone settings.
