If you use Google Chrome as your web browser (and you should) you probably know that it can save your usernames and passwords for sites that you visit. But did you also know that Chrome can sync these passwords across all your devices?
Imagine you’ve created an account on your computer at work but want to sign-in from home or even from your smartphone while you’re out and about. This is definitely easiest if you’re using the Chrome browser and signing in with your Google account on all your devices. Fortunately, you can access all your information from any browser simply by visiting passwords.google.com
Just sign-in with your Google account, to access a list of all the accounts and passwords you’ve used in Chrome.
You can display the passwords by clicking the eye icon or remove any of the entries aren’t able to change your existing passwords. (You’ll have to visit the associate website to do that.)
If you don’t want your passwords stored in the Google Passwords site, you have two options. Don’t save your passwords in Chrome at all or make them unavailable from the Google website.
- Open Chrome and go to Settings – Advanced Sync Settings.
( Or enter chrome://settings/syncSetup in the address bar )
- Under the Encryption Options, choose “Encrypt all synced data with your own sync passphrase”, enter a passphrase and save the settings.
Shortly afterwards your passwords will not be accessible via the Google Passwords site. You can always change your mind revert back to the default settings..
