We usually have a habit of saving our passwords in the web browsers to get instant access to all our Internet accounts. This habit has some disadvantages, like say, exposing your passwords to anyone else who uses your computer – and possibly to various other users over the web. Most of the commonly used web browsers allow us to save and store the password into their local database file. These stored passwords however, provide us a quick access to our accounts but at the same time it can also result in data theft, especially when you are using a shared computer.
This is where Browser Password Remover, a free tool to display and remove all the stored passwords from the browsers. It also allows you to take a backup of all your passwords before you delete them.

The program works really fast and provides a quick access to all your saved passwords in just a couple of clicks.
