- Launch “Google Chrome“ on your computer or laptop, then click on the “vertical ellipsis” (Menu) in the upper right-hand corner of the screen or click on your “profile icon.“
2. Now, select the “Settings” option. Another way to access the Settings page is by typing.”chrome://settings” in Chrome’s address bar.
3. Click on “Autofill” on the left.
4. Select “Passwords.”
5. You’ll see a list of all website passwords you previously allowed Chrome to save. To reveal a specific password, click on the “eye” icon.
6. In the “Security” window, you’ll receive a prompt asking you to enter your “Windows account PIN“ or your Google “username/password” on non-Windows devices. Mac, Chrome OS, and Linux prompt for the OS ‘username and password.“
7. Your password for the selected website gets displayed. To hide it, click on the “eye” icon once more.
