How to Manage Saved Passwords in Google Chrome in Windows

information   Information
You can have Google 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.

By default, Chrome offers to save your password. You can turn this option off or on at any time.

This tutorial will show you how to manage your saved passwords in Google Chrome from within Windows.

If you turned on ask to save passwords in Google Chrome, then when you sign in to a website, Chrome will prompt you Save or Never save your password for the site.

If you click/tap on Save, your password for the site will be added to the "Saved passwords" list in Google Chrome.

If you click/tap on Never, the site will be added to the "Never saved" list in Google Chrome so you will not be asked if you would like to save your password for the site when you sign in to the site.
