For those who’re always connected to the internet, web browsers are really an important part of their lives. Web browsers store passwords, extensions, history, settings and other data. If for any reason the data is lost then it means that we’ve lost login passwords for those different websites and we cannot access those websites now. Not just saved passwords but all the data that the browser stores is lost. This data is known as browser profile and it is stored in a particular location in Windows. If there are more users using the PC, then different profiles are created for all those users. This is true for several apps also and not just for browsers.
