How to See Saved Passwords on Google Chrome

Google Chrome saves your passwords securely both on your device/computer and via Google Password Manager at passwords.google.com so you don’t need to re enter your credentials every time you visit a secure site.  And, assuming you are logged in to your Google account, you will always have access to these saved passwords in your browsers. Your saved passwords can be synced in the cloud to follow you from device to device. So even if you lose access to your laptop or computer, you’ll always have your login available for any site where your password was saved.

This is also a good way to recover a forgotten password without going through the ‘forgot password’ recovery process (which often involves other security checks, answering security questions etc especially for bank and Facebook)

How to see password in Chrome

To see passwords saved to your Google account, visit passwords.google.com

If this is your first time, you may need to sign in to your Google account to activate.

Once you are signed in, that browser user will be associated with your Google (email) account and everything you do will be recorded including browser/Youtube history, bookmarks, etc.  You can always browse as a guest to prevent Chrome from collecting your passwords or saving other personally identifiable information about your internet usage.
