How to see saved passwords in Google Chrome

Have forgotten your password from a particular site and want to use it somewhere else? To see what your passwords are for specific sites, Google Chrome will help you.

Is it possible to check saved passwords in Google Chrome

Service from Google means that you agree to remember your data, such as browsing history, cache sites, geolocation, and, of course, passwords. True, it doesn’t sound very reliable, but Google strictly controls the security and storage of all your data. So you should definitely not worry that you’re being watched, etc.

In general, remembering your passwords and usernames is very convenient for you, because you don’t have to re-enter your passwords and usernames every time you log in to the site, etc. Another plus is that you can control this process. That is, you can forbid Google to remember passwords, remove specific sites from the list of remembered sites, etc. Here you’ll read about how to see which sites and with which passwords Google has stored.

How to find the Google Chrome saved passwords via desktop

The first thing to understand is that Google always asks permission to save your data (password and login) the first time you enter the site, etc. Therefore, if you have forbidden Google to store your information before, it will not be in the list, which you can open with this guide:

  • Launch Google Chrome on your computer and click on the vertical three dots (Menu) in the upper right-hand corner of the screen
  • Now, select the Settings option
  • Click on Autofill on the left
  • Select Passwords
  • You’ll see a list of all website passwords you previously allowed Chrome to save. To see a specific password, click on the eye icon next to it
  • In the Security window, you’ll face a prompt asking you to type into your Windows account PIN, or your username/password if a PIN isn’t used
  • Once done you’ll see your password for the specific website. To hide it, click on the eye icon once more

How to find the Google Chrome saved passwords via mobile devices

On mobile devices, everything is very straightforward and passwords can be found quickly enough:

  • Launch the Chrome app on your mobile device
  • Tap on the vertical ellipsis (three-dot menu icon) in the upper right-hand corner of the screen
  • Tap on the Settings option
  • Then, select Passwords
  • You’ll see a list of all websites you’ve ever saved passwords for on Chrome. To view a specific password, select the website from the list
  • To view the password, tap on the eye icon
  • To view the password, tap on the eye icon
  • Tap the eye icon once more to hide the password if desired, but it automatically hides when closed. Tap on Done to return to the password list

Is there an option to save a password to Chrome

As mentioned above, Chrome always asks for permission to save your passwords, but if you suddenly notice that the browser has stopped asking for it and isn’t saving passwords, this feature is probably just disabled:

  • Launch Chrome on your computer or mobile device
  • Click on your profile icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen
  • Select the key icon
  • Slide the Offer to save passwords button to on

And you’re done!
