What are browsers?

Browsers are those tools that do a recognition of all files on a page, so that we can easily view it. There are a large number of browsers among which there are three main ones that stand out from the others, being the best web browsers 2020.

And these are relevant Mozilla Firefox which represents the best among those developed by open source and that you can download and install completely free.

There are also other browsers such as Apple Safari, Opera, Maxthon, Flock and many others. Although these are not so well known; and some have a very big difference in speed and efficiency in opening pages and browsers that consume fewer resources.

Where is the password stored in the browser?

The database where the passwords are stored has a different location depending on the browser. For example, for Google Chrome there is an encrypted file called "Access data" and accessed via the user folder in the browser.

In the case of Mozilla Firefox, the file that stores passwords is called “signons.sqlite” and as in Chrome its access is through the user folder, now for the Edge browser I change the process a bit, and this is because Microsoft Edge saves passwords within the same operating system, it is more complex. All of the above come from the best internet browsers.

Where are passwords stored regularly?

There are many sites that use a user registration and access system, starting with social networks. Since the purpose of them is that each person has his own particular user and can use the network under the registered profile, knowing and sharing with other registered persons.

Although there are other platforms that users use as well, pages with a cloud service for example, this so that each user has their own files and shares them with whoever they want, and there are many other sites that when we log in we can see the user system.
