Gone are the days when you needed an external password manager to store all the passwords you use for your various online accounts. For a few years now, Google Chrome has had a perfectly adapted password management function, including options to generate, automatically fill in and store your passwords.
It’s not too complicated to manage either. This tutorial will show you how to auto-fill passwords in Chrome.
First, make sure that Chrome offers to save your passwords when you type them.
In Chrome, click the three dots menu icon at the top right -> Settings -> Passwords, then make sure the “Suggest to save passwords” cursor is blue.
From now on, every time you connect to a website, Chrome will ask you if you want to save this password for auto-filling in the future. Answer “Yes” and your password will be stored on Google.
Assuming automatic login is enabled (this is done in the password settings in Chrome), you will not need to type in your password every time, but if you change the login information, options auto-fill your account will appear in a box under the login boxes.
If you have made a mistake with your password entry or if you want to change and manage your stored passwords. you can go back to “Settings -> Passwords” and find the corresponding site in the “Saved passwords” list.
You can delete the existing password here by clicking the three-dot icon next to it and clicking Delete.
You will then need to re-enter the password when you log in to the site again, in which case you will be able to register it again.
