There is a new tweak in the Manage passwords’ represented with a fresh icon that will open the Export passwords option. As the feature was already spotted in the beta version of Chrome 66 and the change was expected. This will convert all the saved passwords to the .csv file and export it to the computer. While selecting the option the chrome will ask you enter your system’s credentials for exporting the passwords to your PC. Google also pulled off the support for Symantec provided trust certificate of websites, as the software company failed to fulfill the required standards of the industry.
