Sometimes you have to sign in to a website from another browser or device, but you can’t remember your password. Fortunately, if you’ve previously allowed Chrome to save it for autofill, you can easily get it back on Windows 10, macOS, Chrome OS, or Linux.
First, open Chrome. In the upper right corner of any window, click the three vertical dots. In the menu that appears, click on “Settings”.
On the “Settings” screen, scroll to the “Autofill” section and click “Passwords.”
On the “Passwords” screen, you will see a section titled “Saved Passwords”. Each entry includes the website name, your username, and a hidden password. To see a password for a particular entry, click the Eye icon next to it.
Windows or macOS will ask you to authenticate your user account before the password is displayed. Enter the username and password you use to log into your computer, then click “OK”.
Once you have entered your system account information, your saved password will be revealed.
Memorize it, but resist the temptation to write it on a Post-it and stick it on your monitor.
If you regularly have trouble remembering your passwords, you can try a password manager.
