After you click the eye icon, you should see the password in plain text. However, depending on your computer or browser’s settings, you might also be asked for a password. For example, I need to enter my Windows password to view this information when I tap passwords that I want to view.

If the password you want to view is not listed here, then you may not have saved it to Chrome before.

Many people are able to get to this screen when they are learning how to look at saved passwords on Chrome, but it’s not always obvious that the icon is an eye that they need to click to see the password.

Now that you know how to view your password list in the Google Chrome Web browser, you will be able to find this stored information whenever you need to view that password.

The steps in this article were performed in the Google Chrome browser on a computer running Windows 7. Once you have found the passwords that are saved in Chrome, you will be able to view them or delete them.

If you have a Windows password set for your Windows user account, then you will need to know that password before you are able to view them.

Step 1: Open the Google Chrome Web browser.

Step 2: Click the Customize and control Google Chrome button at the top-right corner of the window.

In most versions of the browser, you need to click an icon in the upper right corner of Chrome to view data for your account or make changes to settings. But that icon has switched slightly over time, as it’s now a series of three dots instead.

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.

How to View the Passwords You Have Saved to Your Google Account

The passwords that you have saved to Google Chrome (assuming that you are signed in to a Google Account) are saved to your Google Account as well.

These passwords are effectively the same as the password list in Chrome, except that you can sign into your Google Account from any device and find them if you need to know a password.

  1. Open a Google app like Gmail or Google Docs.
  2. Click your profile icon at the top-right, then select Manage your Google Account.
  3. Select the Security tab at the left side of the window.
  4. Scroll down and choose the Password Manager option.
  5. Click or search for a password. You may then be prompted for your Google Account password.

Method 3 – How to View Saved Passwords in Google Chrome

Once you become comfortable navigating the settings menu in Chrome, you will likely be able to remember where the password list is stored, as well as how to change many of the other settings found here.

Chrome also lets you view and change settings using commands that you type into the address bar at the top of the tab. We can use this navigational method to get to the same password screen that we found by going through the Settings menu in the sections above.

To use this method, you will need to click inside the address bar at the top of a Chrome window, either in an existing or new tab, then type chrome://settings/passwords. Show a password by clicking the eye icon to the right of it.

When you have chrome://settings/passwords show you the list of passwords that are saved in Chrome, there are a couple of options at the top of the screen that you can adjust.

  • Offer to save passwords – you can turn this off if you no longer want to let Chrome offer to save new passwords.
  • Auto sign-in – when this is turned on, Google Chrome will automatically fill in credentials for websites where you have allowed it to save usernames or email addresses and passwords.

I find that the auto sign-in option can be problematic, so I often go back to the settings/passwords menu and turn it off when I am having trouble signing into an account for which Chrome has stored a credential combination.

If you go back to the password menu by clicking the Customize and control Google Chrome button and then choosing Settings, you can see the address that we just typed in the address bar. If you click other options in the Settings menu, you will see the addresses for those pages as well.

While remembering and typing those addresses might not be a faster way when you are trying to figure out how to look at passwords on Chrome, it is a shorter process in terms of steps.

Note that while Chrome can often fix mistyped Web addresses if you type something like chorme://settings/passwords or cchrome://settings/passwords/ it won’t be able to open the menu. You have to be sure to type chrome://settings/passwords correctly to get to the menu where you can view your passwords.
