How to Recover lost Chrome passwords after clearing history

Did you accidentally remove your saved passwords on your Chromium-based browser by clearing your browsing history? Don't panic! In this quick tutorial, I'll show you how to restore them.

Firstly, it's important to note that this method will only work if you have the sync function enabled on your other device.

Steps:

  1. Grab your phone or any other device that uses the same browser and account.

  2. Turn off internet on this device immediately to avoid syncing.

  3. Go to the browser's settings and click on the "Passwords" tab. Next, press "Export Saved Passwords".

  4. Transfer exported password file to your PC using a service like Telegram or Google Drive.

  5. On your PC, open the browser's settings and click on the "Passwords" tab. Here, you'll find the "Import" option. Select the file you just transferred and click "Import".

Voila! Your deleted passwords should now be restored.

Note: If you don't see the "Import" option, you may need to enable it first. Simply type "chrome://flags" into your browser's address bar and search for "password import". Set it to "Enabled" and you should now see the option to import your passwords.

Hope this helps :)
