Chrome lets you edit saved passwords

Google Chrome is currently working on a feature that lets you edit passwords you have saved in your browser.

Since 2014, a feature requested by users is the ability to edit passwords stored in Google Chrome.

Chrome passwords

Currently, when a user saves credentials in the browser, the only way to edit these credentials is to use Google Online Password Management at https://passwords.google.com/.

If you want to change a password directly in the Chrome mobile browser or desktop, you must delete the credentials you have previously saved and then log in again to a site with the new password.

This method is not what users expect from password managers.

Password editing comes in Google Chrome

This feature is a user appeal from 2014, but was rejected in favor of others project.

At the end of 2018, when Google made them settings of Chrome passwords more accessible and visible to users, began to focus more on the implementation of this feature.

"This is a request that has been rejected in the past. With Chrome 69 we have launched changes to UI which make password settings more visible - so the environment has changed a bit. We will review it as part of the quarterly planning and inform you about it information later ", Google explains in a request for the function.

The good news is that this feature is almost complete users can try it in the beta versions of Chrome.

To enable password editing in Google Chrome, follow these steps:

  • Download and install Chrome Beta for desktop or Chrome Beta for Android.
  • In the address bar, type chrome: // flags / # edit-passwords-in-settings, then press enter.
  • Change the "Edit passwords in settings" flag to "Enabled" and restart the browser when prompted.

After restarting the browser, you can go to the chrome page: // settings / passwords, click on the menu with the three vertical dots next to the saved credentials and select "Edit password".

There are still some bugs that Google developers process before putting it in mode This release, but all Chrome users can try this feature when Chrome 86 goes to Stable next week.
