How To Turn Off Google Password Manager in Chrome

Chrome has a built-in Google password manager that prompts and automatically saves your passwords. These passwords are synced to your Google account making them available on all devices. However, if you are using another password manager, the Google password manager can be of no use and a bit annoying too. In that case, you simply turn off the Google password manager in Chrome. Here, we’ll show you how.

Steps to Turn Off Google Password Manager

The Google password manager in Chrome can be turned off from the Settings page. Here’s how.

  1. Open the Chrome browser.
  2. Type chrome://password-manager/settings in the address bar and press Enter.
  3. Turn off the Offer to save passwords toggle.
  4. Turn off the Sign-in automatically toggle.
  5. With that, the Google password manager is turned off.

Detailed Steps:

1. First, open Chrome if it is not already open. You can do that by searching for it in the Start menu or clicking on the pinned Chrome icon on the taskbar.

7. Close all tabs and restart the Chrome browser. Once the browser has been restarted, the Google password manager is turned off. Chrome will no longer prompt to save passwords or auto-fill login details.

Remember to use a good password manager to manage passwords and other login details better.

Delete Saved Password in Google Password Manager

After turning off the Google password manager, you can also delete the saved password. This step is optional but if you are already using a good password manager, deleting them from an unused password manager is a good practice. Follow the below steps.

  1. Open the Chrome browser.
  2. Type chrome://password-manager/passwords and press Enter.
  3. Click on the password you want to delete.
  4. Click the Delete button.
  5. The password is deleted instantly.
  6. Follow the same steps to delete all other passwords.

Bulk delete saved passwords in Chrome

If you have a lot of passwords, deleting them one by one may not be the right way for you. For those looking to bulk delete passwords in Chrome, follow the below steps.

  1. Open the Chrome browser.
  2. Type chrome://settings/clearBrowserData in the address bar and press Enter.
  3. Navigate to the Advanced tab.
  4. Select All time from the Time Range dropdown.
  5. Select the Passwords and other sign-in data checkbox.
  6. Uncheck all other checkboxes.
  7. Click the Clear Data button.

As soon as you click the button, all the saved passwords and other sign-in data are instantly deleted. You can verify this by opening the “chrome://password-manager/passwords” page.

Wrapping up — Turn off Google password manager

As you can see, it is pretty easy to disable the Google password manager in Chrome. All it takes is a few clicks, and you are a good go.

As I said earlier, don’t forget to use a good password manager to save your password. For those looking for free and open-source options, try Bitwarden. It supports almost all major browsers and has mobile and Windows apps. One of the best things about using a password manager is that you just need to remember one password. It will give you access to all the saved passwords. When using a password manager, don’t forget to turn on two-factor authentication for extra safety. It is better to be safe than sorry.
