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 password 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 handles passwords

The way that Chrome handles passwords depends on whether you want to sync them between devices.

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.

Passwords that you save on your Android device are also available in Chrome when you're signed in with your Google Account.
