    No.. people won't be able to see unless they have physical access to your computer/laptop.

    If you happen to type in the password in the search textbox then to be on saferside ensure that you delete the entry by -

    - Clear the search box

    - start typing your password / text you want to delete

    - the complete text would be displayed below the textbox

    - select the text you want to delete

    - hit delete button

    If you typed your password by accident in Google, for example, noone else would see it. (The short easy answer presuming your computer has no viruses or keyloggers!)

    Google company can see it, but with millions of searches happening 24 hours a day I'm sure they are not really interested in it.

    Search engines look through webpages so relay information it finds, so typing your password will not add it any public database that you or me can view.

    No, unless you have some sort of spyware/virus on the computer it should be entirley safe. Even if google log the searches, theres so many searches even every minute their never going to notice, and probably wont realise it's your password anyway.

    Hi,

    They cant know what you wrote, unless they have access to your laptop / computer and search in your history.

    Hope it answers your question :)
