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
