Here, we will explain a quick way to export passwords stored on Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Opera, and how to secure them.
From time to time to make browsers secure Google, Mozilla, Microsoft, and other companies keep releasing updates. The latest Chrome update version 88 is an example of the same. With this update, Google allows users to check the password strength and secure passwords. But is this update useful? Can users rely on it?
Well, the answer depends on what data security means to you and what importance you give to passwords. For some web browsers, remembering passwords and allowing synching is all that they want. But some don’t rely on built-in password managers as they aren’t as powerful as third-party password managers.
Also, built-in password managers are limited to the browser you are using. For example, if you use Google Chrome on all the platforms, you can access the saved passwords., But if you use Google Chrome on PC and Safari on Mac, you cannot access the passwords saved in Chrome and vice versa.
This means using a built-in password you cannot have access to all the data. The easiest solution for this problem is to use a password manager that allows syncing data and generating passwords.
