A number of modifications have been made to the Google Password Manager in recent weeks, and the firm is today making them (along with a few others) official.

The Google Password Manager, which is supported by Play services on Android, has long been accessible through the Manage your Google Account UI. It will be much simpler to access with a homescreen shortcut. It can be added by tapping the settings gear icon in the top-right corner of Password Manager. It has the appearance of a multicolored key. It hasn’t been widely rolled out as of yet.

Instead of only offering to save when you sign in, the Password Manager will now allow you to manually add usernames and passwords on all platforms. passwords.google.com does not currently have access to this capability, but Android does.

We always appreciate comments, and many of you have mentioned how challenging it may be to manage passwords between Chrome and Android: Why does it seem so different when the information is identical in both locations?

Instead of providing its own native UI under Chrome settings andgt; Passwords, Chrome for Android will now open Password Manager directly. You may use Chrome to explore the web while looking for credentials, which is one advantage of this. With Chrome 103, this modification first became available.

You can rapidly sign in from the bottom sheet that slides up when a saved password is available by using Touch-to-Fill in the browser.

The Android Password Manager will now alert you about weak and reused credentials, and all Chrome users (including those running Android, Chrome OS, iOS, Windows, MacOS, and Linux) will soon receive warnings regarding compromised passwords.

Last but not least, if you have Chrome set as your default iOS autofill provider browser, the Google Password Manager for iPhone and iOS, which is accessible through Chrome, can now generate passwords when you’re setting up a new account.

These enhancements that we are implementing over the next months are a crucial component of our efforts to build a safer online, which span from our early work on 2-step verification through our future investments in technologies like passkeys.
