Saved passwords in Chrome
Hunt the password: Chrome doesn't make it easy to find them

Google Chrome frequently offers to save passwords for you, but few people have a Scooby Doo where those passwords are actually saved. And, boy, Google certainly doesn’t make it easy to find them.

Here’s where to find all those saved passwords in the desktop version of the browser, and how to see the passwords themselves.

Where to find saved passwords in Chrome

In the top right-hand corner of the browser window, click on the icon with the three vertical dots, then click Settings. (Pro tip: you can also type chrome://settings into the address bar to reach the Settings screen.)

Once in the Settings page, scroll right to the bottom and click on the tiny Advanced link. This opens up a whole new swathe of settings, in which you’ll find a link to Manage Passwords.

Click on that and you’ll get a listing of all the sites for which you have saved passwords. If you actually want to view the password you have saved, click on the three dots next to the site’s listing and click Details.

Now click on the little eye icon next to the password field and you’ll be asked to enter your computer’s password as a security measure. Once you’ve done that, the password will be displayed on screen.
