Throughout our digital journeys, we hop from one website to another, signing up, logging in, and engaging with a multitude of online platforms. Each platform requires a unique set of login credentials – a combination of a username and a password. With the ever-increasing number of websites we interact with, it’s a Herculean task to remember each password distinctly. Recognizing this challenge, modern browsers have come to our rescue with built-in password management features.
Google Chrome, one of the world’s most popular browsers, exemplifies this convenience. Whenever you register on a website or log into a platform through Chrome, the browser gently prompts you to save those login credentials. Once you agree, Chrome securely stores your username and password, ensuring that the next time you visit that site, you’re automatically logged in, bypassing the need to recall and type out credentials.
But, what if you need to recall a particular password? Or perhaps you want to audit the list of saved credentials, make updates, or remove a few? This RiseWindows guide delves into the intricacies of how you can easily access, view, and manage these saved passwords within the Google Chrome browser. Join us as we unveil the steps to master your password management on Chrome.
How to view and manage saved passwords on Google Chrome?
Use the following steps to view and manage the saved passwords on Google Chrome:-
Step 1: Go to the Chrome browser on your computer.
Step 2: You will find three dots (options menu) next to the User icon. Click on it and go to Settings in the drop-down menu.
Step 3: In the menu on the left side, click on Autofill and then on Passwords.
Step 4: As the saved passwords window shows up, you will find a whole bunch of websites for which you have saved passwords.
Step 5: These passwords will appear in dos, which you can view by clicking on the eye-icon next to each password.
Note: Now that you have found all the passwords you have ever saved on your browser, let us get to the managing part. These passwords remain because of security reasons. However, once you click on the eye icon and view them, a pop-up window will show up on your screen, asking you to enter your login credentials. The password will be visible after entering the required details.
You will find three vertical dots on your screen. By clicking on them, you need to go to the Remove option, and you will be able to delete any of the passwords you have saved.
Our navigation across the vast digital landscape involves creating countless accounts, each with a unique username-password combination. Google Chrome, reflecting its stature as a premier browser, eases this burden by offering an integrated password management tool. By saving our credentials, Chrome ensures a seamless experience, automatically filling in details for returning visits. Yet, there may be times when you need to revisit these saved passwords, whether to review, update, or delete them. This RiseWindows guide illuminated the steps to view and manage saved credentials in Chrome, granting users control over their digital footprint. As you continue your online adventures, remember to periodically audit your saved passwords, ensuring they remain secure, updated, and relevant.
