Reveal Chrome Passwords on Windows

By | September 29, 2008

So not unexpected, a free piece of software has been released by Nirsoft that will reveal usernames and passwords saved by Google’s Chrome browser on Windows. This just reinforces the importance of not saving your usernames and passwords in any browser currently on Windows. You put your security at risk.

Why? If you machine is used by others, insecure, stolen or even sent in for repair etc then someone can run this piece of software and steal.
