Google Chrome is undoubtedly the most popular browser. It comes by default on every Android phone. People also prefer Google’s offering compared to Safari and Internet Explorer on the desktop. A new wave of browsers like Brave and Vivaldi and old players like Firefox and Microsoft Edge are gearing up with better offerings with more features. If you are planning to switch from Google Chrome to any other browser then it’s advisable to remove the saved passwords from the Chrome browser.

Most web browsers such as Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari, etc. offer a built-in password manager to store, manage, and auto-fill login details hassle-free. While the users mostly invest in a full-fledged password manager, it’s common to see the same users saving passwords on a preferred web browser such as Google Chrome.

When users switch from their daily Google Chrome browser to a new Firefox or Microsoft Edge, they only import Bookmarks and History. People often forget to export or remove the saved passwords from the old Chrome browser, leaving them to a potential data breach.
