Google Chrome browser allows you import bookmarks, browsing history, and other settings from Internet Explorer or Firefox browser in a jiffy. But the only problem is it doesn’t have an option to export or backup stored passwords.
Sure, there is a free extension called LastPass, but even it doesn’t help much either to have an offline backup. And, you can only find Show saved passwords option under Google Chrome options.
If you are looking for a way to backup or export your stored passwords from Google Chrome browser, there are two ways out there. You can either use the newly introduced Import/Export feature or use a third-party software for the job.
