ChromePass is a small password recovery tool for Windows that allows you to view the user names and passwords stored by Google Chrome Web browser. For each password entry, the following information is displayed: Origin URL, Action URL, User Name Field, Password Field, User Name, Password, and Created Time. It allows you to get the passwords from your current running system, or from a user profile stored on external drive.
You can select one or more items and then save them into text/html/xml file or copy them to the clipboard.

Known Issues

  • In the latest versions of Yandex Web browser, they changed the password encryption and it's now different from the password encryption of Chrome, so ChromePass cannot decrypt the passwords of Yandex anymore.

Using ChromePass

ChromePass doesn't require any installation process or additional DLL files. In order to start using ChromePass, simply run the executable file - ChromePass.exe After running it, the main window will display all passwords that are currently stored in your Google Chrome browser.

Reading ChromePass passwords from external drive

Starting from version 1.05, you can also read the passwords stored by Chrome Web browser from an external profile in your current operating system or from another external drive (For example: from a dead system that cannot boot anymore). In order to use this feature, you must know the last logged-on password used for this profile, because the passwords are encrypted with the SHA hash of the log-on password, and without that hash, the passwords cannot be decrypted.
You can use this feature from the UI, by selecting the 'Advanced Options' in the File menu, or from command-line, by using /external parameter. The user profile path should be something like "C:\Documents and Settings\admin" in Windows XP/2003 or "C:\users\myuser" in Windows 10/8/7/Vista/2008.

Command-Line Options

/stext <Filename> Save the list of passwords into a regular text file.
/stab <Filename> Save the list of passwords into a tab-delimited text file.
/scomma <Filename> Save the list of passwords into a comma-delimited text file.
