Passwords On Chrome PC
Chrome has this feature where it saves your login credentials to a site be it Netflix or Facebook or that scholarship portal, you’d find it here. However, it doesn’t just save sign-in credentials without your permission.
For this to happen;
⦁ An email must be signed into the Chrome browser.
⦁ You’d have to agree to the browser’s prompt to save any sign-in credentials when you’re trying to sign incorrectly.
How to View Saved Password On Chrome PC

⦁ Click on the profile icon at the top right corner. It’s tagged with the letter that begins the spelling of your name in your email address.
⦁ On the menu that comes up; click on the key icon just below your email address.
The next page will provide you with a list of websites you’ve signed into using the Chrome browser either via that PC or another device given your email address was signed into the device.
There are two sections namely; “Saved Passwords” which you will first come across on the page and “Never Saved” located at the bottom of the page. The Saved password section has the name of the site, the username, and the password to every site you’ve signed into designated you allowed Chrome to save the details when prompted.
