Google Chrome can save your website passwords and help you automatically fill them the next time you visit your sites.
There are several ways to turn on the password saving feature in Chrome. Note that Chrome syncs your passwords with your Google account, which means if you enable Chrome to save passwords on one device, that change automatically applies to all your signed-in devices. Let’s explore this feature on both desktop and mobile devices.
This is for desktop and mobile running Chrome. Screenshots are from Windows 10 and iPhone XR
Save Passwords on Desktop
To enable Chrome’s password manager on your Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook computer, first, open Chrome on your computer.
Next, in Chrome’s top right-hand corner, click the three dots (the Menu icon). Refer to the below image:
Now, from the three-dots Menu icon, select the Settings option. See the below image:
Next, on the left sidebar of the Settings page, click the Autofill option. See the following image:
Now, on the right of the Autofill section, click the Passwords option. Refer to the below image:
Next, toggle the Offer to save passwords option to ON at the top of the Passwords page. See the below image:
Note! If you decide you do not want password prompts, just toggle the Offer to save passwords to OFF.
From now on, when you log in to a site in Chrome on any of your devices, the browser will ask you to save your password for that site.
Save Passwords on Mobile
First, open Chrome on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device.
Next, tap the three dots (the Menu icon) in Chrome on your device. If you are on Android, these dots are in Chrome’s top right-hand corner. If you are on an iPhone or iPad, you will find the Menu icon in the bottom right-hand corner. See the following image:
