How to Export Saved Passwords in Google Chrome: If you have saved your login information (username and password) in Google Chrome then it might be helpful to export your saved password to a .csv file as a backup. In the future, if you need to reinstall Google Chrome then you can easily use this CSV file to restore the passwords that you saved for various websites. Whenever you visit any website Google Chrome asks you to save your credential for that website so that in future when you visit that website you could automatically login to the website with help of the saved credential.
For example, you go to facebook.com and Chrome asks you to save your password for Facebook, you give permission to Chrome to save your credential for Facebook. Now, whenever you visit Facebook you could automatically login with your saved credential without the need to enter your username & password each time you visit Facebook.
Well, taking a backup of all your saved credential makes sense, as without them, you might kind of feel lost. But I should mention that when you take backup in the .csv file, all your information is in plain text and anyone with access to your PC could easily retrieve your username & password for any of the listed websites in the CSV file. Anyway, you either store your .csv in a USB and then lock that USB in a safe place or you could import this file to your password manager.
So once you download the .csv file make sure you delete it right after you put that in a USB or inside password manager. So without wasting any time let’s see How to Export Saved Passwords in Google Chrome in Windows 10 with the help of the below-listed tutorial.
