I had a friend use my PC and suddenly, I was having to climb over his "account" when it's my PC. He had deleted the icon pic that was associated with my username, etc., so I was just trying to go back, through Google Chrome (He was using Firefox, I think).

Anyway, this "PASS BROW" app popped up, and I began to fill it in, though I don't know why. I was tired and angry by now. Then, I cut the machine off over night, try to get back online, and this prompt tells me I used the wrong password and my browser will now be closed for security and safety reasons.

How can I get this 'PASS BROW' off of my desktop? Its a terrible application. I am not computer savvy, obviously, and this has had me locked out of my Google for days now.

I tried uninstalling Chrome, then reinstalling but the same issue comes back.

  • Ask your "friend" exactly what he did. edit your question to include that. Without this information the question cannot be answered. – DavidPostill Jul 9 '17 at 9:44
  • So, You can try to disable the extension ?? – RïshïKêsh Kümar Jul 9 '17 at 10:45

You can download PassBrow recover to retrieve your chrome profile back. It is used in case you have forgotten your PassBrow password. Also, you may need the passbrow file which gets automatically saved in your PC (in Version 5.3.2 or later,published in december 2011) while filling information in the PassBrow extension form.

The file may be named like this: "information.passbrow"

Download the PassBrow recover application at sourceforge

  • Wow! If the password database can be recovered that easily then it is not safe to use. Anyone could just recover all of your passwords! – HackSlash Jan 23 '18 at 19:03
  • I never used it myself but based on the answers on the google webstore page it sends link to your email address to reset your password..unless people have access to your email I don't think it will be a major issue..Anyways I use LockPW.. – abhishek Jan 25 '18 at 17:50
