One of the basic and expected features of any web-browser nowadays is the ability to handle your credentials and present them to you as and when needed.

We’ve already shown you how to find saved passwords in Windows 10, but if you use Chrome’s cloud sync feature to keep your passwords in sync between your PC, phone and/or tablet and have most of your passwords backed up in Google’s cloud.
While Google did not normally offer a way to export all your saved passwords, with Chrome 65, the firm has just added that feature to its browser for Windows users. Its hidden behind a flag, but once you follow the instructions below, you should be able to find it.

How to export saved passwords from Chrome

  1. Go to Chrome:flags
  2. Search for Password Export
  3. You’ll see a #password-export flag under available experiments.
  4. Enable it.
  5. Navigate to “Manage Passwords” in Chrome settings
  6. You’ll see a new “export passwords” option. Upon clicking it and confirming the prompt, Google will now download all your passwords as a CSV file, which lets anyone with the file view your saved passwords. It goes without saying that you really shouldn’t share this with anyone you don’t trust.
