Manage saved passwords

You can have Chrome remember your passwords for different sites. Whenever you sign in to a website, Chrome asks if you want to save your account info for that site.

If you’re signed in to Chrome, your passwords will also sync to your Google Account so that you can use them on different devices.

How Chrome saves and syncs passwords

How Chrome saves your passwords depends on whether you want to sync them among devices.

Your passwords are saved to your Google Account, if either of the following are true:

  • You're signed in to Chrome and are syncing passwords
  • You're using Google Smart Lock for Passwords on Android

If you're not signed in or syncing, your passwords are only stored locally on Chrome.

Sync passwords between your computer and Android

If you're signed in to Chrome or are using Google Smart Lock for Passwords on Android, passwords that you've saved in Chrome may be available to automatically sign you in on your Android device.

When you're signed in with your Google Account on your Android device, passwords that you save on your device are also available in Chrome.

Note: If you’re signed in to Chrome, Chrome won’t offer to save the password for the Google Account you’re signed in with.
