Google Chrome comes with an in-built Chrome Password Manager that helps keep records of your username, password, and payment details you saved for different websites.
Chrome’s in-built password manager makes it very easy for you to save those passwords when you log in to any website. Also, auto-fill the saved credential detail whenever you try to log in to the website.
Why use Password Manager?
Today, almost everything is online – shopping, office, social communication, entertainment, learning, etc. And remembering user credentials for every single website is very difficult.
Furthermore, using the same password on multiple websites is a big security risk. Because if any one of your websites gets hacked, you will be at risk of revealing your identity for all other accounts you hold on other websites.
Again, writing down the password on the notepad on your computer will also be a potential security risk. If your system is compromised, it will be easy for hackers to access all your accounts. Therefore, the password manager tool becomes essential to keep your credential safe, secure, and convenient.
Why Chrome Password Manager? And how safe is Chrome Password Manager?
Chrome Password Manager is robust and secure and trusted as it is by Google. All saved passwords in Chrome are in sync with your Google account. Chrome Password Manager is nothing but the Google Password Manager; hence all your user credentials will be available across all your devices where you log in with your Google account.
Furthermore, it’s straightforward and convenient to access the Google Password Manager web page directly from your Google account whenever you want to check your saved user credentials. What makes it more secure is its two-step authentication for your Google account, making it much safer.
