    What is Chrome Passwords?

    Chrome Passwords is a feature within Google Chrome that allows users to save passwords for different websites. It is designed to facilitate easy and secure access to online accounts by managing users' login details. When a new password is entered on a website, Chrome can prompt to save it, streamlining the login process for future visits. Users also have the option to manually add new passwords to their password list.

    This tool enhances security by protecting saved passwords with on-device encryption and offering biometric authentication. To assist users in remembering specific details, Chrome Passwords enables the addition of notes to saved passwords. Moreover, it provides the capability to show, edit, delete, or export these passwords according to the user's needs.

    Chrome Passwords ensures that all saved passwords are only accessible to the user, with Google unable to read them. It supports both local storage on a single device and storage within a Google Account for use across multiple devices and platforms, including Android and Chrome. Additionally, Chrome can automatically sign users into sites and apps using these saved credentials, and users can even add a shortcut to Google Password Manager directly on their home screen for convenience.
