How to view passwords in google chrome


Every day the number of different logins and passwords in our use only increases. The requirements for them from sites and applications are becoming more and more stringent. It is no longer enough to just come up with a long password. It must contain capital letters and various symbols. Well, about the length, of course, no one forgets. In order not to come up with such complex combinations of characters ourselves, password managers built into the system come to the rescue, offering the best options that are almost impossible to pick up.

And sometimes they have to be used on other devices. For example, I created a password for a PlayStation store account on a smartphone, and then I needed to enter it on the console. But few people in their right mind can remember such complex passwords. In such a situation, you need to go to the password manager and calmly rewrite it from there. We have collected for you all the ways how you can view the saved logins and passwords for further use and, if necessary, edit them.

Saved passwords in Chrome

In smartphones on the Android operating system, passwords are stored in two places. The first and simplest is the Google Chrome browser. In it, you can see everything that you saved earlier. Moreover, if you are logged in with your account, then logins and passwords will be synchronized between all your devices where it is used. To open passwords on an Android smartphone through Google Chrome, do the following:

  • Open the Google Chrome browser.
  • Click on the three dots in the top right corner.
  • Select “Settings”.
  • Go to the “Passwords” section.
  • Open the site you are interested in.
  • To view the password, click on the eye icon.
  • Verify your identity using biometrics or entering a password.

After the password is displayed, you can not only copy it, but also make changes if, after saving, you somehow changed it. In the same menu, you can delete it by clicking on the basket in the upper right corner.

In the “Passwords” section, you can even check all your passwords for leaks, and if they are found in the lists, then quickly replace them and not expose your account to threats.

In practice, you can also see logins and passwords on the desktop version of the Google Chrome browser. For this you need:

  • Open Google Chrome.
  • Click on the three dots in the upper right corner.
  • Go to settings.
  • Select the “Autocomplete” section.
  • Open “Password Manager”.
  • To view the password, click on the eye icon and confirm your identity with biometrics if you have it on your computer or enter your account password

Once the password is available, it can be edited or copied for future use. To remove a password, click on the three dots next to the one you no longer need and select “Delete”. After that, the password will be successfully erased. Here you can check them for leaks. Go to the “Check passwords” section and Chrome will show you all your accounts that were found in the lists of leaks. For some services, you can change it directly from the password manager.

Google password manager

But the browser on your smartphone is not the only place where you can find all your passwords. There is another place in Android where you can view them and make changes to them if necessary. To do this, do the following:

  • Go to settings.
  • Scroll down to the “Google” section and sign in.
  • Select “Autocomplete”.
  • Click on “Autocomplete by Google”.
  • Open “Passwords”.
  • Click on the password you are interested in and verify your identity using biometrics or a password to unlock the device.

Here, as well as in Chrome, you can check passwords for leaks. Just click on the “Check passwords” button, wait a few seconds, and all security threats will appear on your screen.

But this is not the most convenient way to get into the password manager. If you often use this feature, then you can create a shortcut on the desktop and no longer make such a long journey. This will require:

  • Go to settings and scroll down to the “Google” section.
  • Log in and select “Autocomplete”.
  • Open “Autocomplete by Google”.
  • Go to “Passwords”.
  • In the upper right corner, click on the gear to go to the settings.
  • Click “Add shortcut to home screen”.

Now you can access the password manager directly from your desktop. To be honest, Google should consider making this process easier. For example, on iOS, passwords are located in a separate item right in the settings, and you do not need to run through the entire menu in search of the necessary data. In any case, I’m glad that now it’s possible to create at least a shortcut shortcut . This greatly reduces search time and adds convenience.
