I am using Chrome’s password manager for quite a long time, so my password list is huge. Well anyway, I have them stored in safe hands (i hope). But what about password let’s say of an app or something that doesn’t have a web server? Well, here is a pretty little trick.
Create a directory with an index.html file inside.
Then just create a basic HTML document with a simple form inside just like below.
Code language: HTML, XML (xml)
<html> <head> <title>Custom Pass</title> </head> <body> <form> <input type="text" name="username"> <input type="password" name="password"> <button type="submit">Yay!</button> </form> </body>
Eye candy right? 😛
Let’s serve it now as an HTTP server to get the trick working
Any HTTP-server tool works but just for keeping it simple I am using Python’s 3 built-in module.
Just get into a terminal cd in the directory where the index.html is stored and type
Code language: CSS (css)
python3 -m http.server 1111
- 1111 is the port where the webserver is running
Just go to localhost:1111 and type Application name and Password (to keep them tidy on Passwords list as they will be listed on the same HTTP address)
Well if everything went right you should see the little key icon at the end of the URL bar of Chrome and everything will be preserved at passwords.google.com, otherwise, drop a comment to help you out.
