How To View Saved Passwords In Chrome For Android And How To Export Them

Go through various lists of best web browsing apps for Android, and you’ll find Google Chrome in each one of them.

With more than 1 Billion installs, Chrome definitely is the first choice for many of us. With that said, the fact that it also comes pre-installed on most of the devices cannot be ignored.

Chrome is a feature-packed web browser. It has got everything that you’d expect from a web browser. Incognito Mode, Data Saver, Ad-Blocker, Auto-Fill, Seamless sync across devices, just to name a few.

But what makes Chrome really stand out from others is the support that it gets from Google.

Google has been known for introducing new features to Chrome every once in a while. One such feature, which was recently added, is a native Password Manager (sort of).

Although not a full-fledged password manager but at least it lets you view your saved passwords and export them.

In case you are in the need to view your saved passwords or export them, you are in the right place. Here’s how to view saved passwords in Chrome on Android devices:
