Manage your website passwords

Google Chrome can save your usernames and passwords for different websites. When you save a username and password Chrome can then automatically complete the sign-in fields for you the next time you visit these websites.

These passwords are stored in the same system that contains your saved passwords from other browsers. On a Mac, Google Chrome uses the Keychain Access to store your login information.

All these passwords -- including the passwords you've saved from other browsers -- can be synced to your Google Account, so that they are available on other computers you're using.

Choose whether you want to save passwords

  1. Click the Chrome menu Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Click Show advanced settings.
  4. Under the "Passwords and forms" section check the "Offer to save your web passwords" checkbox if you want Google Chrome to prompt you to save your password every time you sign in to a new website.

Change password settings for specific sites

If you choose to let Google Chrome save website passwords, you'll see a prompt every time you sign in to a new website. If you click Never for this site in the prompt, your password for the site is not saved and the site is added to a list of passwords that are never saved.

You can edit this list:

  2. Select Settings.
  3. Click Show advanced settings.

  6. To remove a site from this list, select it and click the X that appears the end of the row.

Now revisit the website and you should see the prompt to save your password information again, if you've allowed Google Chrome to show the prompt.
