Google Chrome can offer to save passwords for virtually any website you visit, so that when you return, the credentials will fill in automatically for a quicker sign in experience.

While saving passwords in the web browser is a convenient feature, sometimes you may need to remember the password to change it, or because you have to login to the same website on another device.

Whatever the reason it might be, if you can’t remember a specific password, similar to Microsoft Edge, Chrome includes quick access to view and delete saved passwords within the browser settings on Windows 10.

In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to view the password from a website you saved in Google Chrome.

Once you complete the steps, the password information will be revealed in the page.

In the “Passwords” page, you also see a list of the websites you chose not to save passwords. If you change your mind and want Chrome to offer to save the password again, you need to remove the site from this list.

Furthermore, within this page, you’ll find the option to decide whether the browser should offer to save passwords on sites you sign in, and you can even enable (or disable) an option to allow Google Chrome to sign you in automatically on websites.

We’re focusing this guide on Windows 10, but these instructions should on macOS, and on any other supported platform.
