Google saves its database in the form of SQLite file format. When you use the Save Password option, the passwords are stored in an SQLite database. These files have a .db extension. You can locate these files by navigating to User profiles\app Data\local\google\chrome\user data\default.
The default folder cited above has many database files. You need to find the one that says Login Data.
You can use multiple methods to retrieve the passwords from the folder mentioned above.
1. Use a database browser
You can use any Database browser to retrieve the information saved in the database file. Make sure the database browser you use supports the SQLite file format. You just need to browse to the Login Data folder indicated above. The browser will show history, incoming URL and all other details.
However, please note that the location of the file may not be accessible to the database browser software being used by you. I would advice you to copy the file from the original location and paste it any location that is convenient to you. Your database browser app should be able to access and open it for you.
2. Use Chrome settings
If your concern is only to view the passwords, here is an easy method for the purpose.
- Launch Chrome and go to Settings.
- Select Show Advanced Settings.
- Now go to Passwords and forms
- You should see a Offer to save your web passwords check box if you have opted to save password.
- Click on Manage Passwords option just beside this checkbox.
- You will be shown a list of saved passwords with respect to different sites. The password will be shown as asterisks.
- Click on Show to view the password.
