The amazing features offered by browsers like Google Chrome have kind of made our lives easy.

For example, the password manager has enabled us to forget about remembering the passwords of our online accounts and simply using the inbuilt Password Manager instead.


But sometimes we find ourselves in situations where we have to get the password of a certain online account but we don’t remember.

And we are certain that the password is saved in your Google Chrome browser.

What many people do not know is that they can retrieve their password that is saved in the Google Chrome browser.

This can be done by going to the settings area of Google Chrome and then looking for the password in the autofill section.

Alternatively, you can use the search bar on the top, to find the ‘Password’ section.

It will give you a list of all the websites, and the username and password you have ask Google Chrome to Remember.

On the same page, you can use the search bar on the top right-hand side and type the URL of the website where you have got your account and want to know the password.

Once it shows in the results, you can click on the ‘Eye'( 👁) icon, to view the password.

If you have set up a Screen lock password on your computer you might have to type in there before using it.

Once it is visible you can copy-paste or simply memorize it if it is easy to Remember.

How to Retrieve the Password Saved in Chrome for Android

If you use Google Chrome on your mobile phone, the good news is that you can retain the password saved in Google Chrome even from the Chrome for Android browser on your smartphone.

The process is pretty much the same, you need to go to the settings area of Chrome for Android then find the password section, and then search for the website.

When it appears in the list the username and password would be returned in the same row, just tap on the ‘👁’ icon and you will be able to see the password.

If you are using any other browsers other than Google Chrome, the steps would be pretty much similar since all of them offer some kind of inbuilt Password Manager.

While it is an amazing feature to retrieve password saved in your browser it is also alarming how easily your password can be leaked if someone gets to take hold of your device where your password is logged in.

This is why some people prefer using dedicated password managers. We have written a detailed article talking about the benefits of using third party Password Manager like Dashlane or Lastpass.
