Default Can I recover password from a blackberry backup?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys.. I want to recover the password to my gmail account that was stored in my blackberry backup.

Is this possible?

I would just reset my password, but I don't have access to the secondary email account specified with gmail (I left that job long ago), and I can't wait 24 hours to access my account.

Thanks!

If you had it in password keeper and restored that database, then probably yes.
Actually any database that stored the password could be restored and the password retrieved.

I didn't.. I was hoping they'd be stored in the IPD file in clear text, or even encrypted, and them maybe somehow, I could decrypt it.
