Bulk password changer?

273 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Digerati

I recently had some potential compromised login credentials. I changed the password to several sites, but would like to change my passwors to all of my saved passwords in my saved logins in chrome. I have MANY sites that I have logins to. Is there a program that can change passwords in bulk, as opposed to loiggin into reach site and changing the password one by one? That would be ideal.

Thank you

Mostly no,
But.... There is this:

It only works on supported sites.

I sure hope not! Can you imagine what would happen if a bad guy compromised a user's system, then ran that program to change all their passwords to everything?

Have you considered using a real password manager instead of your browser's? That sure would be a much wiser and more secure option. Then you only have to remember the PW to the manager.

FTR, browser based password managers have one big flaw - someone walking up to your computer when you step away can access your accounts on saved sited.

Having a manager also means your passwords are available to you regardless if your browser is running or not, or even if you decide to use a different browser. Note I also use my password manager to store all my credit card information, my kid's Social Security Numbers, neighbor's garage door key code (we traded - for emergencies), bank accounts, insurance numbers and more - stuff I would never want Google or others to know.

There are several free. Password Safe and KeePass Password Safe are simple, basic, but very secure password managers. Enpass, Last Pass and RoboForm are very popular favorites too.

I hope you are not using the same password on multiple sites!
