How to see the passwords stored on your Android phone and view, delete, change or export. It is easy to find passwords stored on an Android device. Your passwords can be stored on an Android phone or tablet using the Google Chrome app.
The passwords stored in the Google Chrome app are linked to your Google account, so you can view, delete, change or export passwords via Google Chrome on your Mac or PC as well. You can also use the Chrome app to delete any passwords stored on your Android phone.
Not so long ago, using the internet meant remembering each of your passwords individually and typing them in manually. Nowadays, we are lucky enough to have password managers. Password managers keep track of all your passwords, allow you to view them at any time, and allow you to log into most sites without typing anything.
If your Android phone is linked to a Google account, it has its own password manager, which saves all the passwords you use in the Chrome app on Android. These same passwords can be used on any computer with Google Chrome connected to that Google account. Here's how to view, delete, change or even export the passwords stored on your Android phone.
How to see the passwords stored on your Android phone
- Launch the Google Chrome browser on your Android phone and tap on the three dots on the top right. On some devices, these three dots will be in the bottom corner instead.
- Tap the word "Settings" in the pop-up menu.
- Tap "Password" in the next menu. You may need to enter your password or provide a face or touch scan.
- You will be presented with a long list of websites, each of which has a saved username or password. Tap the site you want to find the password for, then tap the eye icon to reveal the password.
- To copy the password so you can paste it somewhere else, like an email or note, tap the icon that looks like two squares stacked next to it. This will copy the password to your phone's clipboard.
