Google Chrome - Manage saved passwords

You can have Chrome remember your passwords for different sites. Whenever you sign in to a website, Chrome asks if you want to save your account info for that site.

If you're signed in to Chrome, you can use your passwords on different devices.


How Chrome saves and syncs passwords

How Chrome saves your passwords depends on whether you want to store and use them across devices. When synced, passwords can be used in Chrome on all your devices, and across some apps on your Android device.

Your passwords are saved to your Google Account if either of the following is true:

  • You're signed in to Chrome and are syncing passwords, or
  • You're using Smart Lock for Passwords on Android

Otherwise, your passwords are only stored in Chrome on your computer.

Make Chrome remember your passwords

You can decide if you want Chrome to save website passwords for you, or not.

On some websites, if you save a password to Chrome or Smart Lock for Passwords, you'll be automatically signed in when you visit that website.

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. Sign in to a website.
    • To save your password, click Save password.
    • If you don’t want to save your password, click Never.

See your saved passwords

You can see a list of all your saved passwords at any time.

In Chrome

    1. On your computer, open Chrome.
    2. At the top right, click More More icon and then icon Settings.
    3. At the bottom, click Show advanced settings.
    4. Under "Passwords and forms," click Manage Passwords. A box will appear with a list of saved passwords.

      • Windows & Mac: If you lock your computer with a password, you'll be prompted to enter your computer password.
    6. The web site password will appear.

On the web

If you've saved passwords to Smart Lock for Passwords or to Chrome while signed in, you can also see and delete your saved passwords at passwords.google.com.


Stop Chrome from asking to save passwords

By default, Chrome offers to save your password. You can turn this option off or on at any time.

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More More icon and then icon Settings.
  3. At the bottom, click Show advanced settings.
  4. Under "Password and forms," uncheck the box next to "Use Smart Lock for Passwords to remember passwords for apps and sites" or "Offer to save your web passwords"

Delete a saved password

You can make Chrome forget specific passwords or clear all saved passwords at any time.

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More More icon and then icon Settings.
  3. At the bottom, click Show advanced settings.
  4. Under "Passwords and forms," click Manage Passwords. A box will appear with a list of saved passwords.
  5. In the "Saved passwords" section, select the website and click Delete Remove icon.
  6. Click Done.

Make Chrome ask to save passwords again

If you told Chrome to never offer to save your password for a specific site, but you change your mind, you can bring back the option.

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More More icon and then icon Settings.
  3. At the bottom, click Show advanced settings.
  4. Under "Passwords and forms," click Manage Passwords. A box will appear with a list of saved passwords.
  5. In the "Never saved" section, select the website and click Delete Remove icon.
  6. Click Done.

If Chrome isn't asking to save any passwords anymore, you may have asked it to stop saving passwords. Bring back the prompt by turning "Offer to save your web passwords" back on.

Chrome isn't saving passwords

If you've told Chrome to save a password but it's not showing up, try deleting and resaving it.

  1. Open your list of saved passwords, and check the website.
  2. If the website is listed, delete the saved password.
  3. Go to the website, and sign in.
  4. To save your password, when prompted, select Save password or Yes.
