A safer way to manage your passwords

Our Password Manager, built directly into Chrome, Android and Chrome on iOS, is a safer way to protect all your accounts online. Your saved passwords are protected 24/7 by Google’s automated defenses and we’ll tell you if we find a site or app you’ve saved a password for has been compromised. Also, when signing up for a new site or app, Password Manager can automatically generate a unique complex password and at your next login it’s auto-filled for you.

“We aim to equip users with controls to determine data they feel comfortable sharing with Google and to choose how long they consider that data to be helpful. Intuitive designs make it simple for users to find, use, and manage their data and privacy preferences.”
