  It seems like almost every website you visit has a login of some sort. Managing and remembering them is virtually impossible, so for convenience the major Web browsers offer a feature that saves your passwords. But software developer has discovered that it’s a bad idea to trust this sensitive information to your browser - especially if your business uses Google Chrome.  


 Visit chrome://settings/passwords and click export passwords. You then have a nice excel document with all the Accounts usernames and passwords for websites stored there.


Scary how easy it was to see all the account logins!
