Google Chrome already has Inbuilt Password Manager available. This allows users to sync with other devices. However, Google is now working on another feature. Under this, users will be able to export passwords for use in third parties. In its simpler terms, it means that Chrome users will be able to export their saved passwords in a text file or in an easy way. But the new functionality that Google is working on will make the process easier. This feature is currently available on the Chrome Dev Channel on the desktop.
What will be the advantage of this feature: Allows users to save passwords on chrome, desktop, and smartphone. With this, users can easily save passwords. Not only this, the browser itself becomes a password manager after popping it down. However, some users may prefer to use another password manager. This feature of exporting passwords will make it very easy to switch from Chrome to any other browser.
How to use the feature:
- To use this feature, users must go to settings-management passwords.
- Users will see a new menu near saved passwords in it. Tapping on this will give the user the option to export the password as a CSV file.
- This file can also be used for other password managers.
When will it be available: This feature is still being tested by the developers and at the moment there is no information about when the feature will be available to the public. But still, it can still be used in flag settings. For this, users have to paste chrome://flags/#password-export into the navigation bar in Chrome. This will enable the option to export passwords. This feature can be used in Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS and Android.
Google recently rolled out Chrome 65 for desktop and Android. Chrome version 66 will soon be seen in beta version. After this, its stable version will be provided.
