You can now see your saved passwords in Google Chrome for Android

By : |October 30, 2017 0

Google is finally bringing the ability to view saved passwords on Chrome for Android. The feature which was earlier available for desktop users is now available for Android mobile users in the latest Chrome 62 version.

Whenever you log in or sign up to a website through Chrome, the browser asks you if you would like it to remember the credentials. On the desktop, you can head to passwords.google.com, and view all the websites you have your accounts on and check their passwords.

The new option means that it’s easy to get a reminder of a password you have saved, which can be handy if you need to access a website from a different computer for some reason. In order to take advantage of the feature you need to be signed into your Google account, and as a security measure, Google also requires you to have a screen lock enabled on your phone. As a security measure, Google also does not allow users to take a screenshot of passwords in text format.

Firstly, to access the new feature tap on Settings in the Chrome menu and then click on Save Password option. Then Tap the website or account you’re interested in, and then tap the eye icon to reveal the password. It is to be noted that the saved passwords will be visible only when the ‘save password’ option is enabled.

The new feature will be slowly rolling out to global users in the coming weeks.
