In this post, we will see how to manage and view saved passwords in Google Chrome web browser. Chrome will save your login usernames and passwords for the various websites you visit. When you save them, it will automatically complete the sign-in fields for you the next time you visit the websites. Earlier, we have seen how we can manage Passwords in Internet Explorer using Credentials Manager– now let us see how to do it in Chrome.

You can also remove any URLs you have saved in the Never saved list. Once you have finished, click on the Done button.
If you wish, you can sync the passwords to your Google Account, so that they are available on other computers you’re using. For this, you will have to be signed in, into your Google account.
