Chrome used to require passwords to be saved as users entered them. There is now a place in the browser to generate and store passwords manually. It can create, store and autofill passwords for websites and apps on PC, Android and iOS.

On Android, Google will now check which of your passwords are compromised or too weak. The company has also unified the Chrome and Android settings management interface. Users can even create a shortcut to quickly get to it from the Android home screen.

To use the password manager in Chrome, turn on sync. This will add Chrome as an autofill option in Settings > Passwords. On Android, search for “autofill service” in settings, select Google for the autofill service, and enable “Use autofill with Google”.

Services like 1Password, Bitwarden, and LastPass have had this level of functionality for a while now. However, the Google manager is free and always available to anyone using Chrome.
