Manage your website passwords

Google Chrome can save your usernames and passwords for different websites. Google Chrome can then complete the sign-in fields automatically for you when you next visit these websites easily.

These passwords are stored in the same system that contains your saved passwords from other browsers. On a Mac, Google Chrome uses the Key-chain Access to store your login information.

All these passwords – including the passwords that you’ve saved from other browsers – can be synced to your Google Account, so that they are available on other computers you’re using.

How to choose whether you want to save passwords

  •     Click the spanner icon on the browser toolbar.
  •     Select Options (Preferences on Mac and Linux; Settings on Chrome OS).
  •     Click the Personal Stuff tab.
  •     Adjust your password settings in the “Passwords” section:

Select “Offer to save passwords“, if you want Google Chrome to prompt you to save your password every time you sign in to a new website.
Otherwise, select “Never save passwords“, if you don’t want Google Chrome ever to save your passwords.

Delete saved passwords

  •     Click the spanner icon on the browser toolbar.
  •     Select Options (Preferences on Mac and Linux; Settings on Chrome OS).
  •     Click the Personal Stuff tab.
  •     Click Manage saved passwords to see a list of all the usernames and passwords that have been saved.

Windows, Linux and Chromebook users:
In the Passwords dialogue that appears, use your mouse to hover over the site whose password you’d like to remove and click the x that appears on the right.
Mac users:
You can remove your passwords in the Key-chain Access dialogue that appears.

Change password settings for specific sites

If you choose to let Google Chrome save website passwords, you’ll see a prompt every time you sign in to a new website. If you click Never for this site in the prompt, your password for the site is not saved and the site is added to a list of passwords that are never saved.

You can edit this list:

  •     Click the spanner icon on the browser toolbar.
  •     Select Options (Preferences on Mac and Linux; Settings on Chrome OS).
  •     Click the Personal Stuff tab.
  •     Click Manage saved passwords.
  •     In the Passwords dialogue that appears, scroll down to the “Never saved” section at the bottom.
  •     To remove a site from this list, select it and click the x that appears at the end of the row.

Now revisit the website and you should see the prompt to save your password information again, if you’ve allowed Google Chrome to show the prompt.
