Most web browsers ship with basic password management capabilities these days. They remember passwords for you if you want, and most provide you with options to add a master password to protect the passwords from unauthorized access by users or third-party programs.

While that is comfortable and used by many, some users prefer third-party tools as they allow them to synchronize the data between different Internet browsers or ship with other features that they require.

Browser Password Remover is a free portable program for the Windows operating system that can be best described as a cross-browser password manager.

What's meant by that is that it will read passwords from supported browsers to display them in its interface. As far as the list of supported Internet programs are concerned, it supports the who is who including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome and Opera as well as several forks of said browsers.

All you have to do after starting the program is to click on the show passwords button to have it scan for supported browsers and passwords saved in them.

All passwords are displayed with information such as the website the password was saved for, the username and password, and the browser it was found in.

Since everything is displayed in clear text, it can be used to quickly look up account information without having to open the browser.

Note: Setting a master password prevents the program from reading the correct information. While it may still be able to pull information from the browser, it comes in encrypted form and not clear text in this case. You do need to be aware that the program will only lists passwords of the current user and not other users on the system.

Browser Password Remover offers two options to handle passwords in its interface. You can remove select ones or all of them, or backup the list to a HTML, XML or TXT file.

Keep in mind that the file will contain a list of accounts and their passwords so that it should be kept secured on the PC should you want to create such a file.


Support for browsers is quite good and while some popular ones are missing right now, with IE11 being the main one, it is generally fairly good.

The program's functionality is somewhat limited right now. It would be great for instance if you could add accounts to other browsers using it either manually or by using a synchronization feature.

Still, if you want to remove some or all passwords from multiple browsers, this is a great program for that job.

      Well it is a bit difficulty to distinguish between domains and files for instance.

    The comments section under this very article (3 comments) is identical to the comments section found under the following article:

    Not sure what the issue is, but have seen this issue under some other articles recently but did not report it back then.

    With the cloud, there is no such thing as unlimited storage or privacy. Stop relying on these tech scums. Purchase your own hardware and develop your own solutions.

      This is a certified reddit cringe moment. Hilarious how the article’s author tries to dress it up like it’s anything more than a png for doing the reddit corporation’s moderation work for free (or for bribes from companies and political groups)

    With Google Chrome, it’s only been 1,500 for some time now.

    Anyone who wants to force me in such a way into buying something that I can get elsewhere for free will certainly never see a single dime from my side. I don’t even know how stupid their marketing department is to impose these limits on users instead of offering a valuable product to the paying faction. But they don’t. Even if you pay, you get something that is also available for free elsewhere.

    The algorithm has also become less and less savvy in terms of e.g. English/German translations. It used to be that the bot could sort of sense what you were trying to say and put it into different colloquialisms, which was even fun because it was like, “I know what you’re trying to say here, how about…” Now it’s in parts too stupid to translate the simplest sentences correctly, and the suggestions it makes are at times as moronic as those made by Google Translations.

    If this is a deep-learning AI that learns from users’ translations and the phrases they choose most often – which, by the way, is a valuable, moneys worthwhile contribution of every free user to this project: They invest their time and texts, thereby providing the necessary data for the AI to do the thing as nicely as they brag about it in the first place – alas, the more unprofessional users discovered the translator, the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, the greater the aggregate of linguistically illiterate users has become, and the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, as it now learns the drivel of every Tom, Dick and Harry out there, which is why I now get their Mickey Mouse language as suggestions: the inane language of people who can barely spell the alphabet, it seems.

    And as a thank you for our time and effort in helping them and their AI learn, they’ve lowered the limit from what was once 5,000 to now 1,500…? A big “fuck off” from here for that! Not a brass farthing from me for this attitude and behaviour, not in a hundred years.
