How to Find Saved Passwords on Your Android Phone (2023)

How to find passwords stored on your Android phone, and export or delete them

  • Your Google Chrome app can be used to store your passwords on an Android phone or tablet.
  • You can access the passwords saved in the Google Chrome app on a Mac or PC as well, because the app is connected to your Google account.
  • Any passwords saved on your Android phone can also be removed using the Chrome app.

Previously, when using the internet, you had to remember each password separately and manually type them in.

We are fortunate to have password managers today. You can sign into most websites without typing anything by using password managers, which keep track of all your passwords and allow you to view them at any time.

Your Android phone has a built-in password manager that will keep track of all the passwords you use with the Google Chrome app if it is connected to a Google account.

Any computer with Google Chrome connected to that Google account can use the same passwords.

The steps listed below can be used to find, export, and even delete the passwords saved on your Android device.
