Hi readers Did you know Google has its own dedicated password manager Sync passwords across your devices ? It’s more than just password-syncing built into the Chrome browser — Google’s solution also offers a web app, mobile apps, deep integration with Android, and automatic generation of strong passwords.
Few people have noticed this, which isn’t surprising — this feature has grown from a simple part of the Chrome browser to escape it and provide a larger, cross-platform password manager.
The following are All the Ways You Can Access Your Passwords
Your saved passwords can be accessed in a variety of ways:
Chrome on Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, and Linux: The password manager syncs with the Chrome browser, so it can be used in Google Chrome on any desktop or laptop platform
Chrome for Android, iPhone, and iPad: Google Chrome’s mobile apps can also sync your passwords, so you can access them in the Chrome apps on Android, iPhone, and iPad. There’s no Safari integration on iOS — you’ll have to use the Chrome browser app.
On the Web: Google offers a web-based interface to your passwords at https://passwords.google.com. You can sign in from anywhere with your Google account to access it.
On the Mobile Web: This is also a responsive web page, which means you could access it from a smartphone. You could even add the website to your smartphone’s homescreen, copy-pasting passwords from https://passwords.google.com whenever you need to log into an app.
In Android Apps: Google recently added a feature named “Smart Lock for Passwords” to nearly all Android devices as part of a Google Play Services update. This feature integrates with Google’s password manager to automatically log you into apps that support it. For example, let’s say you log into Netflix in Chrome on the desktop, and you save that Netflix password in Chrome’s password manager. You can later open Netflix on your Android smartphone or tablet and Android will provide your Netflix credentials to the app, automatically logging you in. This behavior can be disabled or tweaked if you don’t like it.
You can sign in to apps and sites on different devices using passwords saved to your Google Account when you:
