Did you know that Google keeps a record of all the passwords you have stored in your Chrome browser and your signed-in Android devices right on their website?
Well, they do, and there’s an easy way to view all of those stored passwords at one time. That makes it easy to quickly retrieve a password that you might have forgotten.
That record of all your stored passwords is kept at a special URL on Google’s website, and you can see it at https://passwords.google.com.
After you click the link to visit that page you’ll be asked to sign to your account with your Google password. Once you are signed in you’ll be presented with a list of all the stored passwords that Google has access to at the moment.
Every account that’s listed on this page will have the password obscured by a row of dots, but you can reveal any password simply by clicking the “eye” icon that’s located right beside it.
Bonus tip #1: Now that you know how to view all of your stored passwords from Chrome and Android, I recommend that you read this post to find out why it’s a bad idea to allow your browser(s) to store your passwords in the first place.
Bonus tip #2: Most people don’t realize how much information Google knows (and stores) about the people who use their website and various services.
For example, did you know they also have a record of every search you’ve ever made using the Google search engine? Well, they do. And it keeps growing with every new search you make (unless and until you delete your Google search history).
