I have a Nexus 5 with the latest Android 4.4.2.

I'm registered on using Chrome . They use client certificates to authenticate the user. I installed the certificate and could successfully use the site on my mobile.

However, now I want to use the site on my laptop, but Chrome does not seem to sync these certificates. I did not find an options in Chrome on my mobile regarding certificates.

I also could not find anything in Settings > Security > Trusted credentials

Is it possible to export this client certificate from Android, so I can import it in Chrome on my Laptop?

I like to know is it possible to export these client certificates from my android device, so i can import and use it on my laptop ?

Did you get anywhere with this? – bcmcfc Sep 7 '14 at 20:07
I am sorry, no :-( – Alexander Taubenkorb Sep 15 '14 at 8:49
If you root the device and get a prompt, you should be able to just search the entire device for a .crt in what looks to be a Chrome path, no? For a non-rooted device, using only stock functionality, I'm almost sure you cannot do this. – pzkpfw Oct 29 '14 at 7:56

Just faced with exactly the same problem. I googled for an answer but this is page the only case I found.

Solution is simple for rooted device:

  1. Open and file explorer with root-access (I prefer ES file explorer)
  2. Go to /data/misc/keystore/usesr_0 and find there the cert and key files.
  3. Transfer it securely to your desktop.

If you have a non-rooted device then root it and start with step <1>.
