Although Chrome has long been hogging on any device’s memory, it still remains one of the most used internet browsers, rivalled by only a few. One of the main reasons that Google’s browser remains a top choice is because it comes pre-installed in Android devices, which happen to occupy approximately 4/5th of the global smartphone market share. However, that’s not the only reason. Chrome also comes with a slew of features, which are well-baked into the Google ecosystem.
As more services and platforms are getting online, consumers increasingly had to start keeping tabs on more and more usernames and passwords. Chrome, among other browsers, added a neat password manager feature, which they’ve built upon over the years, which helps safely save passwords on the device.
If you’ve saved passwords in the browser but can’t find a way to access them, here is how to view saved passwords in Google Chrome on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS.
