  • If there are multiple passwords on the page, click the Down arrow Down arrow. Choose the password that you want saved.
  • If your username is blank or incorrect, click the text box next to 'Username'. Enter the username that you want saved.
  • If you want to save a different password, click the text box next to 'Password'. Enter the password that you want saved.

If you saved your password on a previous visit to a website, Chrome can help you sign in.

  2. Go to the site’s sign-in form.
    • If you’ve saved a single username and password for the site: Chrome will fill in the sign-in form automatically.

Get alerts to change your passwords

You may get an alert from Chrome if you use a password and username combination that has been compromised in a data leak on a third-party website or app. Compromised password and username combinations are unsafe because they’ve been published online. 

We recommend that you change any compromised passwords as soon as you can. You can follow the instructions in Chrome to change your password on the site where you’ve used that password, and check your saved passwords for any other site on which the password may be saved. 

Chrome makes sure that your passwords and username are protected so that they can’t be read by Google.

Important: You must be signed in to Chrome to get these notifications.

To start or stop notifications:

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More More and then Settings.
  3. Under 'Privacy and security', click Security.
  4. Select a Safe Browsing option: Enhanced protection or Standard protection.
Tip:This feature is only available if 'Safe Browsing' is turned on.

How Chrome saves and syncs passwords

How Chrome saves your passwords depends on whether you want to store and use them across devices. When synced, passwords can be used on Chrome on all your devices, and across some apps on your Android devices.

When sync is turned on for passwords in Chrome, your passwords are saved to your Google Account.

Otherwise, your passwords are only stored on Chrome on your computer.
