How to Manage Passwords on Chrome
Now that you know how to manage your passwords in Chrome, make sure to choose a strong password for your Google account. A strong password is at least eight characters long and includes a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. You can read more about creating strong passwords here.
While it’s important to have strong passwords for all of your online accounts, it can be tough to remember them all. That’s where a password manager comes in. A password manager is a program that helps you create and store strong passwords for all of your online accounts. Many password managers can also generate strong passwords for you.
There are many password managers to choose from, but we recommend using a password manager that’s built into your web browser, like the one in Chrome. Chrome’s password manager is called Smart Lock and it’s available for free. To use it, go to chrome://flags/#enable-password-generation in Chrome and enable the “Enable password generation” flag. Once you’ve done that, you can create a new account on any website and Chrome will offer to generate a strong password for you.
To turn off Google Password Manager: Open the Settings > Tap Accounts > Google. Tap the 3 vertical dots in the top right corner > To turn off Google Password Manager.
Yes, passwords are stored in chrome safely. Chrome encrypts your passwords with a master password, so they’re inaccessible to anyone who doesn’t know that password.
