Getting through to ebay

Had a problem logging in and now it's locked out, phoning ebay- 90 minutes wait!

I can log in, but I cannot change password- doing so it stops me there. Is there anyway of unmasking the hidden/blanked out password during login, so once I'm logged in I know my old password and then change it?

Are you on a mac?
 
No, PC.

Can you check in your account what email address it is registered to (just in case that has changed) and if it's one of yours just tick the I forgot my password box when accessing PayPal on a different device?

So I presume that your password is saved in your browser so you can log in automatically? If you're using Firefox you can see saved passwords under Options > Security > Saved Passwords > Show Passwords. I believe you can do similar in Chrome by entering the address "chrome://settings/passwords".
 
cheers that's done it.

Glad I asked!

On a mac, you can look at your 'keychain access' utility which stores all such data. Perhaps there is some registry similar on a pc. Might be worth googling.
LastPass is one which is universal. If you go for the premium service, you can also use it on mobile devices.
