    How to see the passwords saved on Chrome from a computer

    Purposes Chrome su computer and would therefore be interested in knowing how to see the passwords saved in the latter on Windows, MacOS o Linux? No problem, I'll tell you right away.

    First, start Chrome and click on the icon placed in the upper right part of the window and choose the item Settings from the menu that opens. If you are operating on a computer that is not yours, or in any case you have installed a new copy of Chrome and you want to recover your passwords, you must access your Google account by pressing the appropriate profile picture found at the top right of the browser window and entering your account credentials. Clearly, this is true if you have chosen to sync passwords to the Google cloud from your other devices that you use Chrome on.

    Make sure, anger, that the card is shown You and Google (if not, click on the latter that you find in the list on the left) and proceed by clicking on the item Password. At this point, you can therefore view all the access keys saved in the browser and manage them as needed. The latter will be shown to you under the heading Saved passwords. You will find the referring website under the column Email, the username below that Username and passwords under that Password.

    However, keep in mind that the various passwords are covered by the "dots"; to be able to view them you must therefore press the button with theeye which is next to each of them, on the right. You will then be asked to indicate the name of yours user account on the computer and the Password associated with it (subsequently, to hide the password again, press the icon of theeye crossed out).

    By clicking, instead, on the icon that you find next to each password you can access a menu through which you can to copy, change o remove the chosen password (just click on the appropriate items in the above menu). And if you have saved a lot of passwords and you can't find the ones you are interested in right away, you can help yourself by using the Campo di Ricerca at the top right, by typing the entire name of the Internet site you are interested in viewing the access data.

Just press on "X" placed next to the name of each site to permanently remove the link to the sites in question. I also point out that, again from the same Chrome settings page, you can choose whether to allow the browser to ask you or not save passwords and whether or not to enable theautomatic access, simply letting it on ON or bringing up OFF the switches at the top.

    That's all. Before proceeding further, however, I would like to point out that several third-party programs are also available on the Net that allow you to view the passwords stored on Chrome and other browsers, some safe and that really work, others scams, so you must always be very careful about what you download.

    In this case, one of the safest and most used software is Chromepass, available only on Windows, which can be downloaded for free from this page. I have told you in depth about this and other similar solutions in this tutorial of mine.

Now, if you are using a device that is not yours or you have just installed Chrome, you must log in to your Google account by pressing on the appropriate item and entering your account credentials. Of course, this only applies if you had cloud password sync enabled on the other devices you use Chrome on.

    Well: now press on the item Password that you find in the section Basic settings. You will then see the complete list of all the access data that you have saved on the web browser, in the section Password (your Android) or Saved passwords (your iOS / iPadOS).

From there you can also export all saved passwords by clicking on the appropriate item (only on iOS) at the bottom.

    See synchronized passwords

    As I explained to you before (and, even better, in my tutorial on how to store passwords on Google Chrome), associating Chrome with a certain Google account it is possible to store passwords online on Google's servers. The latter, in this way, are synchronized on all devices accessed with the same Google account; all in a safe and fast way.

    To view (and manage) the passwords stored online, connected to this web page, log in to your Google account by filling in the appropriate fields on screen (if necessary) and click on name of the site related to the password you want to view. Provide, therefore, to insert the Password of your Google account and press the button NEXT.

    If you don't care about the sync feature, you can disable it at any time. To do this (from computer) press the icon placed in the upper right part of the same and then press on the item Settings.

From here, go up Settings> Synchronization and move up OFF the lever ofswitch related to the item Synchronize everything. Finally, click on box placed next to the item Password, to remove the check from the latter, and that's it.

    How to find unsaved passwords on Chrome

    How do you say? You would also like to take a look at the password that you have not saved in Google Chrome? In this case, you need to check in the operating system settings or other browsers, as explained in my tutorial on how to see saved passwords.

    In the future, to avoid "disseminating" passwords between various browsers, I strongly recommend that you have a password manager, that is a program that allows you to store and manage your access keys by remembering a single master password. I propose below the solutions that I consider most valid and reliable.

    • 1Password (Windows / macOS / Linux / Android / iOS / iPadOS) - One of the best password managers available for different operating systems. The program is available as a free trial for 14 days (after which you can decide whether to upgrade to the paid version with various subscription solutions starting at $ 2,99 per month). It allows you to save access data to websites and credit card data by synchronizing them on all your devices and can be integrated into all major navigation browsers.
    • KeePass (Multi) - an excellent free and open source program available for all operating systems (however, on some of them, such as Android and iOS, alternative versions based on the same code are available). It is a solution suitable for more experienced users as it offers various manual configurations. Furthermore, the program does not automatically synchronize passwords with the cloud (to do this you need to proceed manually by relying on external cloud storage services).
    • North Pass (Windows / macOS / Linux / Android / iOS / iPadOS) - another convenient and valid password management program developed by NordVPN. It allows you to store passwords, credit card data, software license codes and sensitive information. The program is available in a free basic version and in a paid version (with the possibility of using it simultaneously on up to 5 devices) starting from 3,99 euros per month.
    • Bitwarden (Windows / macOS / Linux / Android / iOS / iPadOS) - an open source tool to manage your passwords and encrypt them with a specific code. The program can be integrated with the major web browsers and is available in basic form free of charge for one user or paid for multiple users starting at $ 3,33 per month.

    For specific details on installing and using these software, I refer you to my tutorial on how to manage passwords and the one on the best apps for memorizing passwords.

    In case of further problems or doubts

    Even though you have strictly followed my instructions, is there anything that is still not very clear to you? Has any hitch arisen in the course of construction that you are unable to remedy? I like it a lot! However, you can look at the thing by visiting the online section dedicated toofficial support for Google Chrome that "big G" has set up on its website. There you will find numerous articles with useful and detailed information about the operation of the famous browser.

    To use it, select the reference category from the central part of the page and then the topic of your interest among those proposed to you. You can also find what you need by using the search bar at the top, typing in the reference keyword and selecting the relevant suggestion from those that appear automatically.

    You can also take a look at the Google product forum, through which it is possible to receive support and assistance from Google and other users who, like you, using the company's services. To search for discussions that may interest you, use the bar at the top and then click on the title of the one you want to read from the list that appears (you can also take part in it if necessary).
