How to View Saved Passwords in Google Chrome


Google Chrome has a feature where you can choose to save a password for a Web page directly to the browser. You can then return to that Web page and Chrome will automatically fill in the password field with the one that you chose to save. But relying on this can create a situation where you no longer remember the password for a page, but need to enter it on a different computer or smart phone.

Fortunately the passwords that you have saved in the Chrome browser are accessible through the Settings menu, so you can follow our guide below to view your stored passwords in Chrome.

Website passwords are saved directly to the browser, so a password that is saved in Google Chrome may not necessarily be saved in a different browser, like Mozilla Firefox. You can also view saved passwords in Firefox, though, if you use both of these browsers.
