Google Chrome plays a vital role in our daily work and life, saving lots of critical information concerning our privacy. To protect yourself from data loss, you should regularly back up Chrome bookmarks and passwords. This tutorial will show you two easy ways to back up your Chrome data with detailed steps.
Backing up your Chrome bookmarks and passwords is important to protecting your privacy and security. It ensures you can access your bookmarks even if your browser crashes or is lost, stolen, or corrupted. Backing up Chrome data also helps recover Chrome bookmarks, histories, or favorites quickly without manually re-entering.
When it comes to backup, many people would think of using the Google Syncfeature to save all data on different devices. The sync does make it convenient for us to access bookmarks, histories, and settings on computers, smartphones, and tablets. But according to some users' feedback, you may encounter partial data loss, or Google Chrome sync keeps pausing error.
To ensure the security of the backup, we wouldn't cover this method to back up Google Chrome bookmarks and passwords in this article. Instead, two safer solutions will be offered here.
The first method is manually exporting Google Chrome bookmarks and passwords to HTML or CSV files. The other way is using a professional backup tool to save copies of bookmarks and passwords automatically. You can choose according to your needs.
Now let's dive into the specific guide with steps and screenshots:
Method 1. Manually Export Chrome Bookmarks and Passwords to HTML or CSV File
Google Chrome provides a feature for users to back up and restore their bookmarks and passwords quickly in HTML and CVS formats. You can manually export Chrome bookmarks and passwords to an HTML or CSV file for backup. You can also import the backup files whenever needed.

Step 2. Click the three dots icon on the top-right corner, and choose "Export bookmarks".
Step 3. Select a location where you want to put the HTML, and give it a name. Finally, click "Save".

Method 2. Automatically Backup Chrome Bookmarks and Passwords with EaseUS Todo Backup
EaseUS Todo Backup Home is a backup software that allows users to backup and restore their files, hard drives, partitions, and systems efficiently. You can use it to back up Chrome bookmarks and passwords automatically as your scheduled backup plan. The backup can be saved externally or to the Cloud, such as Google Drive, Dropbox, and EaseUS Cloud.
With it, you don't need to save copies of bookmarks and passwords manually each time, which is very suitable for changing browser data.
You don't have to worry about frequent automatic backups taking up a lot of space because the software has incremental backup, differential backup, and compress backup functions to save your storage space.
Before starting your first backup, you need to find the folder where your Google Chrome bookmarks and passwords are stored and then set a scheduled backup. After that, EaseUS TodoBackupo Home will find the specific folder path every time and perform a backup automatically. This is a one-and-done method.
Here are the ways to find where Google Chrome stores Bookmarks and passwords:
Step 1. Press "Windows + R" to open Run, then enter "%UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data" and click OK.
Step 2. Scroll down to find the "Default" folder, which saves all the data settings concerned with your Google Chrome account. Open it and find Bookmarks and passwords(login data).
Now, follow the steps below to set automatic
Step 1. Start Chrome data backup by clicking "Create Backup" and then clicking "Apps data".
Step 2. Once navigate to the apps data backup section, you can find the Chrome section, under which you can choose every account data to back up, including browsing history, bookmarks, password, extensions, and cookies. After the final selection, click "OK".
Step 3. Next you need to choose a backup location to store the important chrome data backup, which you can use both internal or external drives to keep the backup, but for security reason, we highly recommend keep one more backup copy on EaseUS cloud or NAS devices.
