Constantly visiting new websites every day can be a jarring experience. Everyone wants you to sign up for their services before you get any useful information. Most websites today function with some form of registration that presents a better service for its customers. Thankfully, the Google Chrome Password Manager is a tool that will help mitigate the annoyance of constantly signing in. Chrome saves your login details and automatically fills in the sign-in fields whenever you visit a website.
Today, we will show you how to utilize the Google Chrome Password Manager for the best experience.
How to Manage Passwords in Google Chrome
Open the top-right menu by clicking on the three dots. Scroll down and click on Settings to view the Password Manager.
Select the Passwords option to view the next panel
On this page, Chrome allows you to enable or disable the Save Passwords feature by using the toggle on the Offer to save passwords switch.
Google Chrome also uses this page for a detailed list of all the websites with Usernames and Passwords that have been saved over time.
You can export these passwords by clicking on the three vertical dots on Saved Passwords which will bring a small pop-up. On this window, clicking on Export Passwords will save your passwords list in a .csv file format.
Chrome will prompt you to input your login details for Windows
If you want to edit the details of a password or delete a saved password, click on the 3 vertical lines next to the password and you will be shown a pop-up.
Select Remove on the pop-up to remove the saved password.
Select Details to edit the password.
To complete this step, Google Chrome will require your Windows Password, after which you can edit the details.
If Chrome offered to save a password and you clicked on Never, the password will not be saved and the website will be added to a list of websites with passwords that are never saved.
The Never Saved list can be edited to remove URLs if you decide to change your mind in the future.
Your Google Account passwords will be synced automatically, and this will allow you to use them on other computers. To use this feature, simply remain signed in to your Google Account. When you decide to sync the Chrome settings on a PC with your Google account, it will allow you to view, edit and manage all your saved passwords by clicking on the link in Passwords.
A bonus feature from Chrome is the new Password Generator feature. This feature will allow you to randomly generate new complex passwords. Check it out if you have a habit of using similar passwords across all your accounts. Doing this will allow you to be safer on the internet.
