Google Chrome - Sync passwords across your devices

You can sign in with your saved passwords on different devices using Smart Lock for Passwords. Smart Lock syncs your passwords to your Google Account when you're signed in on Chrome or on your Android.

An app or site's password won't show up on other apps or sites.


Save passwords to your Account


If Smart Lock for Passwords is on, when you sign into websites in Chrome or some apps on your Android, you'll be asked if you'd like to save your sign-in information.

To save your password for the website or app, select Save. If you have more than one Google Account signed in to your Android device, you can choose the account where you want to save the password. 

You can view your saved passwords at any time at passwords.google.com or in Chrome's settings.
