If you are signed in to Chrome and syncing passwords, you can view, edit, or delete passwords that have been stored. Go to on a computer and enter your Google account credentials.

If you haven't synced passwords, your passwords are only stored on the iPhone or another iOS device where you saved them.

Sign in With a Saved Password in iOS Chrome App

If you use the saved passwords, the process is practically automatic.

  1. Open the Chrome app on the iOS device.

  2. Go to a site you visited before.

  3. Go to the site's login form. Chrome fills in the sign-in form automatically if you saved the password in the past.

  4. If Chrome doesn't suggest a password, select Passwords above the keyboard, verify your identity with print or face recognition, then select your login information from the screen that opens.

This might happen if you have more than one account or password saved for the website.

  1. In the Chrome app, tap the three-dot menu at the bottom of the screen and select Settings in the pop-up menu.
