Your Facebook password is stored somewhere on your device. For Android devices, you’ll need to access the “Password Manager” accessible through the Google Account.
iPhones have the “Passwords” option in the device’s settings, which comes quite in handy in these situations.
Yeah, you don’t have to reset your password if you don’t remember it. You can find it in your Google Account (if it saved the password by default) or in the “Passwords” section of your iPhone.

How Can You See Your Facebook Password?
Simple, follow these steps (for Android):
1. Go to your phone’s settings and select “Google“
Begin by opening your phone settings (gear icon in the bottom-right corner). Once you’re there, start looking for the “Google” option.
If you can’t find it, look for “Accounts” or something along those lines, and go to your Google account.
2. Tap on “Manage your Google Account”
Found the “Google” page? Good, then you should now select “Manage your Google Account” from the top of the screen. It’s right under your email address!
This will show you several advanced settings for your Google account, which you kind of need now.
3. Select the “Security” tab
You’ll now be redirected to another page with plenty of categories and settings to choose from (screenshot above).
Go to the “Security” category at the top (you may need to scroll left-to-right to find it).
4. Select “Password Manager”
Once you select the “Security “tab, the main page will show multiple security tabs like “Your account is protected,” “Recent security activity,” and more.
Scroll down until you see the “Password Manager” option. Then, tap on it.
The Password Manager holds all the credentials for all the apps on your device IF you choose to save them.
By default, the Manager doesn’t save any password in most cases (so if you haven’t been meddling with this option, it’s unlikely that it saved your Facebook password).
Some devices will behave differently and may save your social media credentials automatically, though.
5. Select “Facebook”
Inside the Password Manager, you’ll find all the social media accounts for which Google saves your passwords.
As seen in the picture above, we’ve saved the passwords for Instagram and Facebook.
Maybe you’ve saved the credentials for multiple social media apps.
Either way, tap on Facebook to open the credentials window.
6. Confirm your identity
To access your Facebook credentials, you’ll need to confirm your identity.
Enter the password that you’ve set up for accessing your phone.
It could be a PIN code, a model, or your fingerprint.
After you confirm your identity, the Password Manager will show you the username and password for Facebook.
Next, you’ll need to tap the Eye icon next to the password to reveal it.
We can’t attach a photo because our phone won’t let us take a picture of the credentials.
Oh, one more thing – if you can’t find your Facebook account in the “Password Manager,” you’ll have to reset it because there’s no way you can find it somewhere else.
