How to import and export the digital certificate in Chrome.

We are going to explain to you how to import and export a digital certificate in Google Chrome, so that if you want to use one that you have in another browser or save the one you have in Chrome to use it elsewhere you can do so. It is a very simple process that you can do from your own options, in the settings menu, and very similar to the one we teach you to do in Firefox.

In general, to install a digital certificate it is usually enough to double click on it within Windows and choose whether to install it in the operating system or in a specific browser. But if for some reason, it fails, or because of using another operating system, you need to do it by hand, this is the way you can do it. In addition, exporting it will be useful to avoid having to download it again if you want to install it elsewhere.
