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, you can use your passwords on different devices.

How Chrome saves and syncs passwords

How Chrome saves your passwords depends on whether you want to store and use them across devices.

Your passwords are saved to your Google Account if you're signed in to Chrome and are syncing passwords.

Otherwise, your passwords are only stored on Chrome on your iPhone or iPad.

Make Chrome remember your passwords

You can decide if you want Chrome to save website passwords for you, or not.

On some websites, if you save a password to Chrome or Smart Lock for Passwords, you'll be automatically signed in when you visit that website.

  1. On your iPhone or iPad, open the Chrome app Chrome.
  2. Sign in to a website.
    • To save your password, tap Save.
    • If you don't want to save your password, tap Never.
