How To Add Passwords to Google Password Manager

How To Add Passwords to Google Password Manager

In this guide, we’ll go through the process of adding a password to Google Password Manager when you first create an account on a website. In addition, we’ll show you a few workarounds to manually add passwords.

Add a Password to Google Password Manager When Creating an Account

Google Password Manager stores all your sign-in information and suggests new passwords when you create new profiles with your Google account. It’s also enabled by default, so there’s nothing you need to do to activate this online security system. Keep in mind that you need to have a Google account to use Google Password Manager. After you create an account, every time you sign up for a new website and create a username and a password, the Google Password Manager window will pop up in the upper-right corner of Chrome.

If you want to use Google Password Manager, you will have to sync all the information from your Google account. If you choose to turn on the sync feature, all of your passwords, bookmarks, and search history will be synced to all your devices. This feature is also useful in cases where you lose or switch to a new device. All your passwords will be imported as soon as you sign in to your Google account on your new device.

  2. Follow the prompts to create a new account.
  3. Enter your username and password.
  4. The “Save Password?” window will appear in the upper-right corner. Click on the “Save” button.

That’s all there is to it. Every time you visit this website, you will be able to log in to your account automatically. If you’ve synced your account information with other devices, you’ll also be able to do this on your phone, laptop, etc.

To make sure you’ve turned on the sync feature, this is what you need to do:

  1. Open Chrome on your laptop or computer.
  2. Click on your profile picture in the upper-right corner.
  3. Go to the “Turn on sync” option and turn it on.
  4. Reenter your email and password for your Google account.

If the “Turn on sync” tab isn’t there, then you’ve already enabled it. From this point on, you can show, edit, copy, and delete saved passwords. This is how it’s done:

  6. Scroll down to see “Saved Passwords.”

If you want to remove some of the passwords from the list of saved passwords, all you have to do is click on the “X” on the right side of each password. Below, you will also find a list of the passwords you told Google never to save. They can be removed from the list the same way.
