Export Saved Passwords In Google Chrome
How to export saved passwords in Google Chrome: If you have saved your login information (username and password) in Google Chrome, it may be useful to export the saved password to a .csv file as a backup.
In the future, if you need to reinstall Google Chrome, you can easily use this CSV file to restore the passwords you have saved for various websites. Every time you visit a website, Google Chrome will ask you to save your credential for that website, so that in the future when you visit it, you can automatically access the website with the help of the saved credential.
For example, if you go to facebook.com and Chrome asks you to save your password for Facebook, you give Chrome permission to save your credential for Facebook. Now every time you visit Facebook, you can automatically login with your saved credential without having to enter your username and password time your visit Facebook.
Well, taking a backup of all your saved credentials makes sense, as, without them, you could feel lost. But I must mention that when you back up to the .csv file, all your information is in plain text and anyone with access to your PC could easily retrieve your username and password for any of the websites listed in the CSV file.
Anyway, you either save your .csv on a USB and then lock it up in a safe place or you can import this file into your password manager.
So once you download the .csv file make sure to delete it right after putting it on a USB stick or within the password manager. So without wasting time let’s see how to export the passwords saved in Google Chrome in Windows 10 with the help of the following tutorial.
