Today we will talk about managing passwords in Google Chrome – how to managed, edit, and view them when needed. Chrome allows users to save logins and passwords for visited websites that require registration. When you log in for the first time, the browser asks whether you want to save the password and login for this website. If you agree, next time you visit the site, Chrome will sign-in automatically by filling the fields required.
Manage passwords in Chrome
Open Google Chrome and click on the icon with three vertical dots in the top left corner, then select Settings in the menu that will appear. Alternatively, you can type chrome://settings/ and hit Enter to get there.
Click Passwords to open the menu will show all saved passwords.
In this menu, you can disable features such as auto sign-in and the offer to save passwords.
Below the mentioned functions you will see a list with all the sites you visited and saved usernames/passwords in Chrome.
Here you can also export your saved passwords. To do that just click on the icon with three dots above saved passwords. A small pop-up window will appear where you need to click Export passwords and the browser will extract them into the .csv file.
If you want to delete the password, check its details, or edit them, click on the icon with three dots against the password you are interested in. Chrome will show you all Saved password details if you click on Details. To delete the password from Chrome, select Remove.
When you are entering your password and login information on a new website, Chrome will ask you if you want to save it. If you don’t want the browser to remember it, click Never. The password won’t be saved, while the website will be listed not to bother you again with the same question (the Never Saved List).
You can always synchronize your passwords to the Google Account. If you are using multiple devices with the same Google Account, your passwords will be available on other devices. To do this, you need to be signed in the Google Account. After synchronizing Chrome settings, you will be able to view, edit, and manage all your Google Account passwords using the Passwords panel.
There is another cool feature, not all Google Chrome users know about. The browser has a built-in random password generator. This tool generates complex, hard to crack, passwords for users. It is still an experimental feature, though. To check how it works, type chrome://flags and scroll down until you see “Automatic password generation.” Against it, you will see a drop-down menu where you can enable, disable it or set to the default setting.
