Most websites require you to create user accounts to access their content. While this is great for security reasons and to create personalized profiles, remembering passwords can be a hassle, especially if you have many.
Fortunately, Chrome comes with an autofill function that can auto-populate password fields on different sites each time you try to log in. It can also sync passwords across all signed-in devices using the same Google account. In most instances, this feature is enabled by default.
This guide will show you various ways to save passwords in Google Chrome using this built-in feature on both desktop and Android.
