Batch remove stored passwords

Posted

I discovered a password I used in several sites has been violated. How could I remove from Lockwise ALL those credentials involved? Since are 700+ I'd like to batch delete them. Is it possible?

Hello Daniele,

Would you do this please :

Type in the address bar :

chrome://passwordmgr/content/passwordManager.xul (press Enter)

(maximize the window)

At the bottom of the page you'll see a "Show Passwords" button.

As you have many logins, you may have to scroll down quite a few times.

This may not do what you want, but it'll be better than having to remove the logins one by one.

Do you know if this view is available also for the passwords stored in Chrome/Google ? If I go to: chrome://settings/passwords using Chrome I cannot batch select them.

Thanks,

I understand why you would think that : it's the word "chrome", right ? But this has nothing to do with Google's browser ....

Each browser has their own features and options.

Maybe ask Google Help how to batch select them ?

Note that you should never use the same password on more than one website, especially if this is also for the same username (email address). Always use different passwords for each website.

The word "chrome" here has nothing to do with Google's browser that they named "Chrome".

Yes, you can - only since the update to Firefox version 73 the extension "xul" has been changed to "xhtml", so now you will have to enter this in the address bar :

chrome://passwordmgr/content/passwordManager.xhtml
