Google password manager: how to use
If you use the Google Chrome browser on your computer, smartphone or tablet, you may have already been asked if you want to record your passwords for sites you sign in to. You may not even know it, but this is Google Password, Google's password manager. Unlike other apps for managing passwords, it works natively in Chrome when you're signed in to a Google account.
This way, you don't need to install anything or worry about configuring the service. If you're curious how you can use this Google Password Manager, just check out our complete guide. Just see the details below!
As mentioned earlier, the Google password manager does not need to be installed. Just use Google Chrome as your primary browser and be logged into your Google account while using it.
This way, whenever you log in to a new website, Google Passwords will ask you if you want to save your password and username. When you return to that site, the manager will ask if you want to use the saved login to log into your account.
This way, you don't have to remember all your login data on different websites. Other than that, you don't have to keep opening a password app to perform that login.
The service itself is very reliable and well worth using. It's only good to know how to use it and what else you can do with it, of course.
In the tips below, we'll talk about the possibilities of the service in addition to saving your passwords!
How to use the Google password manager?
Now that you know more about Google's password manager, it's worth knowing how to use it in its entirety too. First of all, you need to access your official website at the link and log in to your Google account if you are not already logged in.
Just sign in with your Gmail account, which is very simple. Then, follow these steps:
Step 1: When you access Google Passwords, there will be a notice explaining more about the service. To continue, you only need to click on “First steps”.
Step 2: When you do this, you’ll already see a list of the sites you’ve already signed in to and saved your password to Google Passwords. It may have some very old sites depending on when you started storing your passwords there.
You will have two options here. You can use the search bar to find the site you are looking for, or you can take a direct look at the list to find the site you want.
When you find the site you want to know more about, just click on its icon in the list.
Step 3: when clicking on the site, you will go to a page dedicated to your login on it. You will see your username, password and some icons for different options.
Next to the password, you will see an icon to hide or show the password. By default, it will be hidden for your security. Other than that, there will be an icon to copy both the username and the password, if you need to.
Step 4: in addition, it is worth mentioning the “Edit” and “Delete” buttons on this page. As you can imagine, this means that you can change your login data or delete it from Google's password manager.
Step 5: it is worth mentioning that if you change something, it will only be changed on the Google Password page. So this option only works if you have changed the real login and have not updated the data on this Google service.
If you choose to make this change, you can also change your username. When finished, just click “Save”.
That's basically what you need to know about Google's password manager. Our only tip is to avoid signing in to Google on computers or devices that you don't own or trust.
After all, anyone with access to these devices will be able to see their passwords in Google Password if they are logged in.
