How to Find a Forgotton Password in Google Chrome

Advetisements

As a human being its a normal tendency to forget few things, but eventually we are able to recall most things. But when time is of the essence, our forgetfulness might be the cause to a lot of trouble. The same is the case with passwords.

Most of us are registered across multiple websites and online services on the internet and all of them are secured by a password of our choice. If in any case we forget any of these passwords, you are definitely going to have a hard time unless you have noted the password somewhere.

Fortunately, if you are using Google chrome, then you might not have to take too much trouble to find out your passwords. One good thing about Google chrome is, the web browser has its own password manager and the first time you sign in on a website, the password manager prompts you to save the password within Google chrome. If you have accepted it this request then your password will be saved in Google chrome’s password manager.

Now if anyhow you forget your password, you can easily find your password by looking up for your passwords in Google chrome’s password manager. Let me show you how.

    hi there I guess my English is worse then I know.
    When I read the topic tittle, I thought that there I will find an article about “how to find/recover passwords that has been lost/deleted from google account.”

  • Jay

    The title is misleading and implies that the article will explain how to recover a password that you’ve deleted from the list of saved passwords in Chrome, not just access that list.

    • Solo Ing

      Totally agree!

  • Jimaro Morales

    Great, if you can remember the password for your password manager. If one needs that password how can he/she find it ‽

    • Darrell
