ChromePass is a password-management application that displays usernames and corresponding passwords that have been stored by Chrome. The interface is very simple, and allows you to see all of your stored information, as well as corresponding web addresses. This application is best used for backup purposes, because it allows you to save your password records into different formats (text/html/xml), so you will still have them if your computer or Chrome crash.
Things You'll Need
- Google Chrome
Go to the ChromePass website and scroll down to the bottom of the page. Click on the download link under the "Feedback" heading.
When the download screen pops up, click "Save as" and download the .zip file directly to the desktop. Once the file has downloaded, right-click the folder and select "Extract all files."
When the ChromePass icon appears on the desktop, double-click it and select "Run" from the window that pops up.
Watch for a list of all of your stored usernames and your password to pop up in the ChromePass application window. You can copy or export the information you need using the File menu at the top of the window.
Once you are finished, simply close the window and delete the file on your desktop. Since ChromePass is an application and not a program, you do not have to worry about uninstalling it.
Tips & Warnings
- It is wise to store all of your passwords in a secure PDF or Word document that you keep saved in a secure email address. That way, if your computer crashes, you can still access forgotten passwords, as long as you can access your email.
- Since ChromePass is not a secure application, it is a good idea to delete it once you have retrieved/backed up the information you need.
