As you know, most browsers allow you to save credentials necessary log in to a website requiring registration. The Chrome browser also allows users to save logins and passwords for visited websites.
On the one hand, this option comes in handy when you frequent a specific website. The “Auto sign-in” option saves you the bother of typing in your password every time you need to visit the online resource.
On the other hand, password managers may be vulnerable to insider hacking, which makes some users feel uncomfortable about letting their browser remember the password for fear of losing the browser-saved credentials.
If decide to delete a password, disable your browser password manager, or make your current password stronger by editing it, you should be able to manage and view saved passwords in Chrome. Below you can find a tutorial that will help you do it promptly.
Managing Passwords In Chrome
- The first thing you need to do is to fire up your Chrome and select “Settings” from the browser menu.
- Select the “Passwords” option to access the menu with saved passwords. Once there, you may proceed to disabling the “Offer to save passwords” feature.
- You will also see a list of all the websites along with the browser-saved credentials.
- If you need to export your passwords, make sure to press the same-name button and wait for a small popup window to appear.
- You also have an opportunity to convert your saved passwords to the .csv format. To do it, choose the “Export passwords” option.
- After that, you’ll be asked to enter your Windows username and password.
- In case you want to delete your password, change it, or view its details, click on the 3 vertical lines icon next to the password that needs editing and wait for a popup to appear.
- Select the “Remove” option if you want to delete the current password.
- To change your credentials, select Details and edit the password from there.
Next time, when a website asks you for credentials, your browser will ask you whether you want to save the new password or not. If you don’t feel like saving your password, click on Never. That’s it! From now on Chrome will stop saving passwords. Moreover, it won’t bother you asking if you want to do it.
Furthermore, if you use multiple devices with the same Google Account, it would be a wise decision to synchronize your passwords to your Google Account. All you need to do is to sign in to your Account and tweak some Chrome settings.
