How to see saved passwords on Google

All the most important web browsers have a password manager , i.e. a component that allows you to memorize keywords and then reuse them when needed so you don’t have to remember them by heart. In this article we will see how to access passwords saved in Google’s browser and therefore in its cloud. Additionally, we will give you instructions to review your saved passwords even if you use other browsers.

We have already talked about the importance of Google account security, we recommend that you choose a strong password .

To consult the passwords you saved previously, you need to log in to your Chrome browser with your Google account (which is also your Gmail account).

To access just a few simple steps:
