How to Export Passwords from Google Chrome

Many of you who don’t use a separate password manager use the de facto password manager in Chrome. And that’s OK because Chrome requires you to enter your Windows PIN or password before you can see the passwords.

If you’ve ever wanted a list of your passwords for safekeeping – or for importing into a password manager, this article is for you.

Here’s how to export your passwords from Google Chrome.

chrome://settings/passwords

The password dialog will open.

Next, click on the 3-dots at the top-right corner of the “Saved Passwords” dialog.
