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. When synced, passwords can be used on Chrome on all your devices, and across some apps on your Android device.

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

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