Google Chrome on Android has a good knack of saving your Username and Password for most websites you visit if you allow it. This feature basically enables Chrome to provide an auto-sign the next time you visit these same websites.
The feature is considered very convenient by many, as with it a user does not have to remember complex and long password characters. But, this also means that you have to manage your saved passwords and usernames.
So, for your benefit, today we are sharing some effective ways to manage your saved passwords in chrome for Android & store your credentials on chrome for swift visits in the future.
How to manage your Chrome saved passwords on Android
Accessing chrome to find the password manager:
The first thing that you need to do is open up the Password Manager tab on your Android. Here is the step by step procedure that you have to follow to achieve it;
Step #1. First of all, open the chrome browser on your Android device.
Step #2. Then if you navigate to the top right corner, you will find the ‘three vertical dot’, Tap on it would allow you to see the settings point in it.
Step #3. On the tap of the settings option, one needs to select the save passwords option from that menu.
Step #4. Take a look, see whether it’s disabled or enabled. After that, if it’s not enabled then do the needful.
Management of the saved password feature:
If you don’t want Chrome to prompt you all the time to save password when you enter a new website or use new credentials, then follow the below-given steps;
Step #1. Go to the chrome browser on your android device.
Step #2. Tap at the settings option which you’d find at the top right corner.
Step #3. Go and click on the ‘save password’ option in it.
Step #4. Disable the blue slider to turn off the feature and enable it for the opposite.
Viewing your saved password:
As of now this feature is not available for Android devices using the Chrome browser. The chrome browser over Android does not allow you to modify or change the password directly from the password manager.
If you decide that you no longer want Chrome to remember a specific password or username credential, all you need to do is just tap on the name of the website in question. After that, just tap the Delete button and the Chrome will remove that site’s credential from your saved passwords list.
Now we all know that the saving our credentials and passwords on our Android device can sometimes make us vulnerable in terms of Data security but it is a regular convenience that we can’t afford to ignore.
The Chrome allows us to save and manage passwords to an extent; however thanks to its limitations, users sometimes opt for password saving apps like Enpass, Dashlane or LastPass.
But for a long term and a regular solution, Chrome Password Manager is quite competent for the job.
