How to export passwords from Google Chrome
Google Chrome has a built-in password keeper, which is handy for keeping your frequently used passwords for autofill purposes. However, we do not recommend using it, as it's unsecure. We recommend using a secure password manager like LastPass, Keeper, or Dashlane. Sites like these specialize in keeping your information secure.
We'll show you how to export your passwords from Google Chrome into a .CSV file in the steps below. You can then keep this as a protected file on your computer. Or, you can use this file to import your passwords to a secure password manager.
How to export passwords from Chrome
- In Google Chrome, log in to your account.
- Click your picture in the top-right of the browser screen.
- In the menu that pops up, click the key icon for passwords.
- To the right of Saved Passwords, click the kebab menu.
- Click Export passwords.
- On the Export Passwords message that pops up saying, "Your passwords will be visible to anyone who can see the exported file", click Export passwords.
- Change the File name to the name you want the file to be (A).
- Change the location on your computer to where you want to save the file. For example, your Windows desktop (B).
- Click Save (C).
Chrome defaults to a .CSV file, which is the file type most password managers prefer for importing the file to their service.
