Google Chrome now allows this big export passwords move; see how you are affected
Google Chrome users can now export passwords stored in the built-in password manager, allowing users to move to a third-party password manager, like 1Password or LastPass with ease
Google Chrome has added many features recently that include ad blocking features, passwords export, and more. Google Chrome users can now export passwords stored in the built-in password manager, allowing users to move to a third-party password manager, like 1Password or LastPass with ease. The browser now lets you export your passwords so you can import them into a different app easily.
Here is how to get started: To install the new functionality, users must type the command "chrome://flags/#PasswordExport" into the address bar and have to press Enter. The user will land on Manage Passwords tab in the Settings menu to find the list of Saved Passwords. There will be option to export passwords with a prompt asking users to confirm the download and Passwords exported are saved in a csv file. Password managers ensure users that users have unique login for each account.
The feature will be available on Mac, Windows, Linus, ChromeOS and Android. Besides this, Google recently improved the pop-up blocker in Chrome, giving it more teeth against malicious advertisements which pop up on webpages and won’t go away until users click on them. If an user click on them it will redirect to a new page showing full-page advertisement. Now Chrome can block such pop-ups from redirecting users to a new webpage and the feature will be enabled by default in the new Chrome version 64.
