PostHeaderIcon Chrome Master Password

An update for Chrome master password, as of 5/22/2011 and as far as I know, you cannot have a master password to protect your saved password in Chrome, the Google web browser.  It is a shame that Google has been turning a deaf ear or just play dumb on this issue.

A ‘reason” a Goolge representative give is: “Someone with physical access to your computer could install a keylogger to steal your passwords or go to the sites where your passwords are stored and get them from the automatically filled-in password fields. ”  ( http://www.google.com.bz/support/forum/ ) But more often, a keylogger can be detected by anti-virus tools.  I agree that there’s no 100% security, but at least master password can prevent our saved passwords from being seen easily.  Why does not Google just give us what we have been asking for and add a warning about a keylogger?

Firefox gives me master password and I believe the Firefox team also understand the issue of possibility of a keylogger, but their master keyword feature is still one of main reasons for many Firefox users being reluctant switch to Chrome.

So for our current solution to the lack of Chrome master password is still the one I mentioned at: http://kaibo2.com/wp/portable-google-chrome-master-password/

    I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do My spouse and i encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you have hit the nail within the head. Your idea is excellent; the issue is an issue that not enough people are usually speaking intelligently about. I am very happy which i stumbled across this during my search for something concerning this.
