Need to view or change a password for one of the websites you use all the time? Here’s how you can do that in the Google Chrome browser.

Published Categorized as Tech & Apps

When you sign in to a website with a new account, Google Chrome can save your username and password so you don’t have to enter them again for future logins.

This is a great feature that can save you a lot of time. But sometimes you need to see one of your saved passwords. So how can you do that?

To view your saved passwords in the Google Chrome desktop browser, open Settings, go to the Auto-fill tab in the left sidebar, and then open Passwords. Find the username and password you’re looking for and click on the eye icon to reveal it.

On a mobile phone, you can view your saved passwords in Google Chrome by going to Settings > Passwords.

This tutorial will show you how to do both, step by step and using screenshots.
