For practical reasons, Google Chrome includes a password manager by default. If you choose to save your information there, it will automatically fill out the login forms so you don't have to. Whenever you log into an online account like Facebook, Google Chrome will ask you if you want to save your password. If you agree, it will always be possible to later delete this data or other confidential information from your account. However, Google Chrome will no longer automatically fill in your username and password.

Steps

Step 4. Look for the Passwords and Forms option

Step 5. Ask yourself if you want to save your web passwords

The second option under Passwords and forms allows you to save your passwords for other websites. If you want to enable this option, click the box to check it. If it is already checked and you want to deactivate it, click on it to uncheck it.

  • Once the box is checked, click on the blue link that says Manage Saved Passwords. You will see a new window appear with websites whose passwords are saved and those whose passwords are never saved.
  • When a website is listed in the Saved Passwords section, it means that if you have trouble remembering your password, you can simply click on the website in that list and make the password visible by clicking on Display.
  • Add or remove websites as you see fit in the "Saved Passwords" and "Never Saved" sections.
  • Click on the button Ended at the bottom of the pop-up window to save your changes.

Step 7. Remove or view your passwords

In the pop-up window that opens, hover the mouse cursor over a saved password to display an X button. Click on it if you want to remove the password. If, on the other hand, you have forgotten a password and you want to find it, click on the button Display.

Advice

  • You can also type chrome: // settings / passwords in the address bar to directly display the password manager page.
  • When you log into a website, a bar should appear at the top of the screen. If you click Never for this site, the bar will never be displayed again when you log in to this site. If you click Save password by accident, you will still be able to delete the saved password by following the above steps.
  • You can also go through the Personal data page to define if Google Chrome saves your passwords before anything else. If you don't want your information saved in this way, just click on the radio button next to Never save passwords. So Google Chrome will never offer to save your passwords unless you come back to this page to change the settings again.
