Google is updating its password manager for Android and Chrome. The California-based company is currently rolling out a number of updates that help make the experience easier to use, with even stronger protections built in. The update will provide a one-time password settings page so users can sync and save passwords between their Chrome web browser and Android device. Instead of relying solely on Chrome, users will now be able to manually add passwords to the service. Let’s take a closer look at the new Chrome password manager updates, all the new changes, and everything we know so far.

Chrome’s Password Manager Gets an Update: What’s New?
For starters, the company is introducing a streamlined and consolidated management interface that’s consistent across Chrome and Android settings. Chrome will now automatically group passwords from similar sites or apps, and you can now create a shortcut on your Android home screen to access your passwords with a single tap.
Passwords can be auto-filled in apps and web pages when using Chrome on Apple’s iOS mobile operating system. If an iOS user chooses Chrome as their autofill provider, Chrome will also offer secure passwords and sync them immediately. Password verification now lets you verify all of your previously saved passwords at once. On Android, Google will identify weak and frequently used passwords in addition to compromised credentials.
On Android, Google says a new “Touch-to-Login” feature lets users enter their credentials via an overlay at the bottom of the screen “to make logging in even faster.” Google also lets you add your passwords directly to the app. Google is also extending its compromised password warnings to all Chrome users on Android, Chrome OS, iOS, Windows, macOS, and Linux in an effort to protect even more users.
For those who don’t know, Google’s Password Manager can create unique and strong passwords for you across all platforms and helps ensure that your passwords aren’t compromised when you browse the web. Google says it continues to invest in its password manager to support emerging technologies like passwordless passkeys.
