How can check my password?

Answered by John Hunt

To check your saved passwords on an Android device, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Chrome app on your Android phone or tablet. You can usually find this app on your home screen or in the app drawer.

2. Once you have opened the Chrome app, tap on the “More” menu. This is usually represented by three vertical dots or lines in the top-right corner of the screen.

3. From the “More” menu, scroll down and tap on “Settings”. It may be located towards the bottom of the list.

4. In the Settings menu, look for the “Passwords” option and tap on it. This will take you to the password management section.

5. Inside the Passwords section, you will see a list of websites or apps for which you have saved passwords. Each entry will show the website or app name, along with your username or email associated with it.

6. To view the password for a specific website or app, tap on the entry. You may be asked to verify your device’s security, such as entering your PIN, pattern, or fingerprint.

7. After verifying your device’s security, the saved password will be displayed. However, keep in mind that the password will be hidden by default, represented by dots or asterisks.

8. If you wish to reveal the hidden password, tap on the eye icon or the “Show password” option. This will temporarily display the password on the screen.

9. If you want to copy the password to the clipboard for easy access, tap on the copy icon next to the password. You can then paste it into the login field of the respective website or app.

10. If you receive a notification or alert saying “Change automatically”, it means that Chrome has detected a weak or compromised password. Tapping on this alert will allow Chrome to generate a strong password for you and save it securely.

It’s important to note that Chrome syncs your saved passwords across devices if you are signed in with the same Google account. This means that you can access your passwords on other devices, such as your computer, by signing in to Chrome with your Google account.

Remember to keep your device secure by using strong, unique passwords and enabling additional security measures like two-factor authentication whenever possible. Regularly reviewing and updating your saved passwords is also recommended to ensure the security of your online accounts.

Please note that the steps and options mentioned above may vary slightly depending on the version of Chrome and the Android operating system on your device.
