Hello there, and welcome to another informative article on How to view chrome saved passwords. When working with your PC or Android device, you must have gone through certain platforms where you are asked to fill in either your email address or create a username to have access into that platform. Now, none of those platforms will ask for a username or email address without asking for a password, and I think I’m correct to say that most of us can remember our usernames to any internet platform but find it difficult to remember the passwords that follow.

That is why I have decided to share this brief insight on How to view chrome saved passwords. Now, the steps I have stated below are mainly for those that use Chrome as their default web browser, so pay close attention, so that you don’t miss a step. Many have found themselves stranded on a website, not being able to input their passwords on a platform that they have once accessed, now this can be very annoying and frustrating, I have been through that myself that is why I can wholeheartedly tell you that the steps that I am about to list out for you really works and can allow you to not only view your saved passwords but manage them as well.

From the steps above I’m sure you understand and know how to view your chrome saved passwords and to also manage the passwords settings for future purposes. From the passwords settings, you can also set the ‘Offer to save passwords’ option on and off, and whenever you have any sign-in to do, it will automatically show your username and passwords in the hidden state, which will make it a whole lot easier for you to access websites without trying to remember what your passwords were. This makes it quick and comfortable for easy access to your important websites.

 

Summary

In the end, it is a little bit inconvenient, because anybody that has access to your PC might be able to access that website and log in to it, all because the username and passwords are saved already, you have to do is log in. But all that can be managed in the passwords settings menu, choose what happens to your credentials and save it.
