Google added a new feature in the latest release of its Chrome browser to easily export the passwords into a file. The Chrome browser already serves the facility to export the saved passwords but across the various synchronized devices using the same browser. Now, the Chrome 65 enables the users to export all their saved passwords for using with third-party password managers.
As the latest version of the Google’s web browser hit the devices on Tuesday there is a new option to export all your saved passwords into a file. After updating the chrome you will be able to download all your passwords to a .csv file from the browser. However, for now, the feature is available only in the developer option and need to be enabled by “chrome://flags/#PasswordExport,” experiment flag. To export the saved passwords you need to access the developer mode in the chrome and search ‘Passwords’ in the Settings. Then you will find Saved Passwords > Export passwords, clicking the Export password will download the file on your computer.
Once you click the Export Passwords and confirm the download, a .csv file will be downloaded containing all your passwords. The passwords will be visible to everyone having access to that file, so you need to be careful with the file. The feature is accessible only in the developer mode, so for the stable version, the users need to wait for the chrome 66 beta. The beta version is expected to be enrolled by Google in the coming weeks.
The downloaded file containing all saved passwords can be imported to other password managers. The flag note enabling the password exporting feature is available for Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, and Android.
