It seems Google activated central place for storing app/website passwords which is accessible on-line at https://passwords.google.com/ and all the remembered Chrome passwords are synched there across all the linked devices. Which is pretty weird that this happened without my knowledge (previously they were stored on my local computer).

I would like to backup/export these stored passwords as it's not pretty clear how they're stored or how these passwords are safe on the cloud and move away from it.

I've checked Accounts Help: Download your data page, but this service is not available on the list in settings at https://www.google.com/settings/takeout.


AFAIK there isn't a way to export/download stored passwords yet.



As for workaround, I've installed Dashlane (a password manager app) where you can automatically import all Google-stored passwords (it should ask on the first run), then using their app you can export them into archive file (such as CSV, Excel or encrypted format). Using this method, I've moved all my passwords from Google Passwords, and never used it again.
