Multiple Ways to Import Passwords into Google Chrome.
These days most of the sites will ask you to create an account for accessing them. Whether it be an online shopping site or a job website you must login to it with an id and a password. With these multiple sites, ids and passwords most of you will be confused and it is not easy to remember each password.
In order to provide user support, most of the web browsers provides an option to remember the site address along with its login credentials. Thus, you can save the ID and password to the site itself and when the next time you try to log in, these id and password will be filled automatically.
With this, most of your IDs and Passwords will be stored in your frequent browser itself. Since all the data is stored in the browser, you tend to use the same one all the time and don’t feel comfortable in switching the browser.
The main reason behind it is the fear regarding the saved login credentials. Well, if you are thinking of changing your default browser to google chrome, then you can import your saved login credentials from another browser to google chrome.
