Cyclonis Password Manager Lets You Import All Your Existing Usernames and Passwords from Browsers
By: Cyclonis Limited
Why do people use browsers for storing passwords?
Years ago, the World Wide Web's popularity was growing rapidly, and so was the number of online accounts people had to deal with. At one point, users started to feel overwhelmed with all the usernames and passwords they had to remember, and browser vendors quickly realized that they could help by fitting their products with password storing capabilities. Because most of what we do on the Internet involves a browser, the feature was well received, and many people now struggle to imagine life without it.
People should think twice before storing their passwords in the browser
Storing login credentials isn't as easy as creating a spreadsheet and filling it with data. In some cases, passwords protect some extremely sensitive information which means that they too need to be kept safe. By default, browsers encrypt passwords before saving them locally, but it's a known fact that the key that decrypts the login data is also stored on the device's hard drive which means that stealing the passwords is not that difficult. And while most vendors have introduced some form of cloud syncing capability, there isn't a lot of information on how the passwords are handled in the vast cyberspace.
Moving from the browser to Cyclonis Password Manager is easy
You might be new to Cyclonis Password Manager, but you probably aren't new to the Internet, and despite the warnings, you might have quite a few passwords stored in your browser. Now, you need them in your Cyclonis Password Manager vault.
Immediately after you create your account, Cyclonis Password Manager will let you scan all the browsers installed on your computer for usernames and passwords, and after a few seconds, it will display a list of the login credentials it has found.

There is one final step – installing the Cyclonis Password Manager browser extension with which using your usernames and passwords will be just as easy as it was when they were stored in the browser.
