How do I change saved password settings? Google Chrome Guide 10/29/08 6:01 PM

Re: How do I change saved password settings? Google Chrome Guide 10/29/08 6:07 PM
If you've set a password for a website but want to change it in the future, you can do so from the Options menu:

1. Click the Tools menu.
2. Click Options.
3. Click Minor Tweaks.
4.
In the 'Passwords' section, click the Show saved passwords button.

Now, select the passwords you'd like to change and click the "Remove" button. When you visit that page again, you'll be prompted to save the password you type this time. Click "Save password" and the new password will be saved.

I tried this supposed "solution" and when I logged into the site where I previously said "never for this site", it still didn't ask me if I wanted Chrome to save my password.  So what do I do now?  Why can't you add a "changed my mind" option for saving passwords? I also suggest you add a third choice of "don't save now" or "not this time" (like Firefox has) because sometimes you haven't made up your mind about saving a password and you shouldn't be railroaded into choosing "yes" or "no".

Chrome really needs a master password, and a way to undo Never Save Password For This Site.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? afficianado45 1/2/09 10:38 AM
Is there an updated solution for this issue?  I don't have password settings on my Minor Tweaks menu.  I have no way of updating a password that has recently changed.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? Wrodar 1/7/09 7:28 AM
ow can I get back Chromes "password saving pop up" after I misclicked "Never Save Password For This Site"?
Re: How do I change saved password settings? Mesonman 2/13/09 11:01 PM
You can also clear the password in question, open Firefox and store the password in Firefox, then import passwords from firefox using Chrome. Worked for me.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? fbi365 7/12/09 1:15 PM
First of all.  Simply removing the password does nothing but force me to reenter ALL of my info.  I do not get prompted again to save password after removing it.  This thread does NOT solve the problem.  Try again
Re: How do I change saved password settings? †Tommy G.† 7/12/09 2:50 PM
Unfortunately, in reality, to get the Save Password prompt back, you have to remove all your cookies, in turn, having to reenter all saved info on all sites.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? fbi365 7/12/09 2:57 PM
What if I just re-installed Chrome and started from scratch
Re: How do I change saved password settings? †Tommy G.† 7/12/09 3:11 PM
Gee, that would be like "killing a gnat with a sledge hammer".  Love that quote, came from one of our posters.  

I think it would be easier to just clear cookies.  IMHO.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? fbi365 7/12/09 3:14 PM
Thats what tech support said about my driver problem, I just reformatted and reinstalled windows, took half the time and ACTUALLY fixed the problem.  I lack subtlety.  Where's my sledge?
Re: How do I change saved password settings? †Tommy G.† 7/12/09 3:20 PM
Hahaha,  I hope you don't buy a new car when your tires need air!  Have a great evening.  Oh, if the extremes work for you, don't change what works.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? fbi365 7/12/09 3:22 PM
Deleted cookies, still doesn't ask to save password.  I am inching closer to doing something drastic.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? †Tommy G.† 7/12/09 3:35 PM
I have only one more suggestion.  Restart Chrome after the changes.  If no joy, which is a popular saying here, a more tech savvy contributor will come up with a suggestion.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? tadc 7/24/09 2:18 AM
Yeah, this is a terrible answer.  If you have to change a password for one site, chrome will always remember the old, useless password.  Then your have to remove that site from the sites for saved passwords.  Then there is no way to get chrome to save the new password, unless I delete all my cookies, as the poster above suggested, and then reenter all that data and those passwords all over again, everytime I change one single password.  Nahgonnahappen.  I'll just have to go back to IE.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? tadc 7/24/09 2:29 AM
OK, since I'm ditching chrome anyway I thought I'd give it a try.  I cleared all my browsing history, deleted cookies and restarted chrome.  It still does not offer to save passwords for the site where I had to change my password.  All the suggestions above are just shots in the dark.  No one really knows what to do and the folks at chrome obviously never gave any thought to sites that require you to change passwords periodically.

Check out http://andy.hwang.tw/2009/01/google-chrome-password-manager.html for a quick description of how to hack the file that stores the "Never Remember Password" information.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? arun reddy 9/1/09 6:08 PM
this is really shit one when compared with Mozilla Firefox . this is not safe to use there is no password protector at all. but it would be good one if they try to fix up the master password option in this
Re: How do I change saved password settings? ultranerdx 11/17/09 11:09 AM
I'm having this same problem. I removed the old password thinking that it would re-prompt me to save it again, but it doesn't. Now I have to type my password on certain websites every time. Major bummer. Any updates on this that I should know about?
Re: How do I change saved password settings? ziz101 11/19/09 5:49 PM
thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Re: How do I change saved password settings? rsf47 1/4/10 6:52 PM
my "solution" has worked so far (20 minutes). I changed my password on the site and then bookmarked the page with the correct password. Theoretically (I am NOT a computer genius by any means) as long as I only access the site via the bookmarked page I should be all good.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? ergosyn 2/9/10 1:10 AM
All you have to do is go into Chromes options then go to the personal tab and open show saved passwords and delete the website from the exceptions tab.

Extensions! I just tried LastPass and it's a dream.

Re: How do I change saved password settings? annakcamacho 8/23/10 7:52 AM
1. Click on the Tool button (top right corner).
2. Click "Options."
3. Click "Personal Stuff."
4. Click "Show Saved Passwords."
5. Click on the one you want to delete and click "Remove."

The end.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? QQFarmer 8/23/10 8:35 AM
Just install LastPass: https://lastpass.com/lpchrome_bin.crx.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? ibbeebee 10/27/10 2:23 AM
why can't chrome have the functionally of both explorer & firefox that when you change a password on a site they both just simply ask if you want to save the changes this whole thing seem so complicated
Re: How do I change saved password settings? terrdietz 3/2/11 10:21 AM
none of this helped Ideal with people every day  I would rather talk to a person then on this it is so upseting this way talk in person is faster.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? riopesco 3/17/11 7:38 PM
where in +++++ is minor tweaks. certainly not under my options menu
Re: How do I change saved password settings? John the TTG 4/15/11 4:52 PM
Not sure if it was in earlier chrome versions, but my chrome version is very easy on password management. All you have to do is:

Click the wrench in the upper right hand corner

Options or Prefferences *its different on windows than linux

Once the options menu loads, click over to "Personal Stuff" it might be in a tab on the top, or a tab on the right

Click "Manage Saved Passwords"

Scroll down to the bottom where it says "Exceptions"

when you hover over one of the sites listed, it should highlight the site and show a little x on the right side *not sure about different chrome versions

click the x.......

visit the site again....

enter your password

click "Save Password" Or equivalent text once the blue drop-down appears
Re: How do I change saved password settings? techningeer 7/2/11 2:17 PM
afficianado45 has it right. Chrome currently has no way to change passwords. And as others have suggested, there should be a master password, perhaps the same on as is used for Google Sync. This needs to be fixed soon, as I have to change my passwords frequently. And thanks to the Google team for what they have done so far!

Re: How do I change saved password settings? g8briel 7/2/11 5:28 PM
This solution is no longer correct.  It should be the following steps to manage passwords:


1. Click the Tools icon (wrench).
2. Click Preferences.
3. Click Personal Stuff.
4. Click Manage Saved Passwords
Re: How do I change saved password settings? techningeer 7/4/11 1:16 PM
g8briel, can you edit the password? I know I can only delete it, then Chrome asks me if I want to save the password next time I try to log in to that site. Is this the same for you?

--tehcningeer
Re: How do I change saved password settings? inked skin 9/14/11 11:53 PM
What I did was, as follows:- click on the spanner icon for settings and go into options, then choose personal stuff on the left. You'll see an option for manage saved passwords. Click on that and then down the very bottom are the sites which you chose to never save password. Remove the sites where you want to now save a password. When you enter your username and password in the next time, the option will appear for saving the password. It worked for me. Not sure how to change an already saved password though. I haven't had that dilemma yet.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? ayush.shikha 10/8/11 8:12 AM
Chrome should update this method with a auto-update option. When a webpage opens with the password and username entered, Chrome should recognize a manual update to the password and ask to update the password in its records.
Firefox does it, why cant Chrome?

I work for a company that makes me change my password every 40 days, it becomes a headache to go in and delete and save passwords again.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? Sie_Deen 10/11/11 12:49 PM
Hi everyone,

Thanks for your reports. One reason for not automatically updating the saved password with a new one that is typed in, is that it's hard to differentiate if the new one that is typed in is indeed a new password, or it may be a typo/wrong password that should not be associated with the corresponding website and username login. We continue to work on improving the current solution of storing passwords, and appreciate all the feedback that you guys are providing.

As for sites that are not prompting the "Do you want Google Chrome to save your password?", please check the following:
1. In wrench icon --> Options --> Personal Stuff --> Passwords --> check Offer to save passwords (Ref[1] below)
2. Click on Manage saved passwords, in the Never saved section, if the site you are trying to save the password for is listed here you'll have to remove it before it will prompt.
3. (optional) Clear browsing history (wrench icon --> Tools --> Clear browsing data)
If the site still does not prompt to save the password after trying the above, please let me know what site it is so that we can look into this.

Note: Some sites have set autocomplete="no" to prevent saving passwords that are sensitive (i.e. banking websites). In this case, Chrome will not prompt to save the password even if it's not listed in the Never saved section.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? ayush.shikha 10/11/11 5:15 PM
@Sie_Deen:

The only time a user will be entering the password on the webpage is when the user wants to change it, in all other cases the user will let Chrome autofill the password and click go/next/login. And once the Chrome detects a change in the password, it can prompt the user to save it or discard the change (just like it does when logging in a new website).

So what if the user enters the wrong password while trying to save the new password? Well, the user will not be able to log in and will remain on the same page. The user can now enter the correct password and since this is on the same page, the user can update the new correct password.

Also, if you feel this is feature which not everyone will like, simple create an on/off option.

I know these things are are easier said then done, but that is the difference between a GOOD browser and the BEST browser.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? happigal 10/11/11 8:04 PM
I entered a password incorrectly and it was saved that way. The way I fixed it was by going to the wrench icon > options > personal stuff >manage saved passwords. I found the one I wanted to change on the list and clicked the "x" to remove it from the list. Then I went to the website and signed in with the correct password. The first time I signed in I didn't get the prompt to save the password. So, I signed out and signed in again. That time I got the prompt and saved the password. Then I signed in one more time to make sure it worked and it did.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? texasvogue 11/6/11 12:19 PM
If you ONLY want to change a password and still have access to another email address, this is the simplest solution.  
At the login page there is a small line below your password box that says
"can't access your account?"
Click that, then I selected "send link to reset password".  This action sent link to my other email address which is already forwarded to my Gmail.  I accessed the link and "changed my password" ON MY PHONE.  This is the key.  Do it from your phone.
Then you can login WITH NEW PASSWORD on computer.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? JoePiotti 11/7/11 11:24 AM
chrome://settings/personal > Manage Saved Passwords > (bottom list) click x next to the site you want it to ask you about again
Re: How do I change saved password settings? Martin Ivanov 11/10/11 10:03 AM
How can i make so that a person cannot inspect my passwords when he sits on my pc ???
Its so furstrating ..

Re: How do I change saved password settings? bofa 10/26/12 11:50 AM
I went to:

Settings
Advanced settings
Manage Passwords

The problem is when I typed in my password it didnt save the capital letters in the password so it comes out wrong whenever to enter the site. Google needs to fix this

Re: How do I change saved password settings? QuickDrawMcCraw 1/7/13 12:00 AM
FBI365--I JUST WANT TO SAY A BIT "THANK YOU" FOR MAKING ME LAUGH!! I MEAN THAT WITH MY ENTIRE HEART! I HAVE SPENT 6 HOURS HERE, AFTER RETURNING FROM FLORIDA AND HAVING SPENT HOURS UPON HOURS THERE, JUST TRYING TO GET MY PASSWORD ISSUE TAKEN CARE OF. I AM A FORMER COMPUTER PROGRAMMER, AND I "STILL" HAVEN'T HAD AN INKLING OF ANY LUCK WHATSOEVER WITH THIS S**T!!!! DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT FIREFOX, AND HOW IT WORKS WITH FACEBOOK? THE "ONE AND ONLY" REASON I EVEN "USE" GOOGLE CHROME IS BECAUSE IT IS "SUPPOSED" TO WORK BETTER WITH FACEBOOK. I DIDN'T USE TO HAVE AS MANY PROBLEMS WITH CHROME, BUT IT SEEMS THAT IT GETS WORSE AND WORSE EACH DAY THAT PASSES BY, AND ALTHOUGH I'VE BEEN ACCUSED OF HAVING THE "PATIENCE OF JOB," I HAVE ABSOLUTELY HAD IT!! WHAT A WASTE OF MY NIGHT(WELL, JUST LOOKED AT THE CLOCK AND IT IS INDEED MORNING..NOT ONLY MORNING, BUT HERE, IT IS 3:00 A.M.! THE LAST TIME I LOOKED IT WASN'T EVEN MIDNIGHT YET..THAT'S HOW LONG I'VE BEEN AT IT. THIS IS THE MOST RIDICULOUS AND FRUSTRATING ISSUE I HAVE "EVE" HAD ON A COMPUTER IN MY LIFE, AND I'VE BEEN WORKING WITH PC's SINCE THE WEEK THEY CAME "OUT" WITH PC'S IN THE 80'S. I WAS JUST LOOKING OVER THESE COMMENTS TO SEE IF I SAW ANYTHING HELPFUL WHEN I HAPPENED TO SEE UR RESPONSE, AND I JUST "HAD" TO RESPOND. IT'S THE FIRST TIME I'VE LAUGHED ALL NIGHT LONG, AND IT FELT GOOD! SO THANK YOU AGAIN; MAY GOD BLESS YOU RICHLY; AND GODSPEED TO YOU!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!! :)
Re: How do I change saved password settings? James Peters 2/3/13 3:32 PM
Current CHROME FIX! Its now under settings>then scroll down, click advanced settings> then click "password manager" under passwords and forms. Then just delete the saved entry! Next time you enter it, the "Do you want to save password" message will appear. You're all welcome!!
Re: How do I change saved password settings? Monica Jae Datz 2/22/13 5:56 PM
actually, your answer is completely inaccurate.  I deleted the site where there should have been a pass stored -- the field for password was empty, but the ip was for my router.  I deleted every entry and instance for the particular router to no consequence, i.e., I was never repromted to save.  Also, I don't think it is the logging into the router issue because i have saved info for my others.  got a resolution to this problem??  would LOVE to hear it.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? James Peters 2/22/13 10:34 PM
Wow, way to be unnecessarily insulting about it! Did you discover that your life sucks today and decided to take it out on a random person? Bottom line is that is exactly how it worked for my browser and I posted the information to help other people. For anyone with a standard setup, this was the current method. If you have better information, post it. Either that or be silent.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? LaVonne Caudle 2/26/13 5:48 PM
James...talk about WOW! Calm down sweetie! You SOOO took what I said the wrong way. I just received an email from you saying exactly what you said above. Fortunately, it gave me the link to "here"..to this "conversation." Look, I was in vacation in Florida when I became extremely frustrated with the Google password thing..it would not let me change it. (I had an entirely different, and much more important, issue with Google Chrome recently, and thought that email was from a Google employee at first, and that they were going to address the issue I had at hand the past few days..but I ironed that one out earlier today. THIS was in JANUARY. Did you send that email then, and I JUST NOW received it?

Regardless, when I clicked on the link that was in your email, which brought me here to the actual comments, I was shocked that you thought I was insulting you. I am the last person who would try to publicly humliate, or even upset, ANYONE (except for maybe a Google employee because they refuse to help me! LOL) I had forgotten entirely about this incident until I received your email a few minutes ago. And, again, the link within it brought me straight here. Again, you took what I said entirely the wrong way. As I read what I typed, I was more and more confused as to what you were upset about. I thanked you for making me laugh, as I was, and I still am, very very sick. And whatever it was you said ticked my funny bone, and I was actually thanking you for that. Did you not see at the end of my comment where I said Godspeed to you, and wished you a Happy New Year? Honest to God, that was all. I was GRATEFUL to you because you put the first smile that I had had on my face in quite a while. With that said, I will apologize that it came off to you in that way. I never MEANT for it to, but I am sorry that it did.

I meant every word I said with my good wishes to you. Keep on keeping on with great suggestions for people experiencing problems--I think that's a great thing. My only suggestion would be, maybe try not to expect the worst from people, because some people are really really good people, and I am one of those! ON YOUR SIDE!! So I hope you DID have a Happy New Year, and again, Godspeed to you always!! Take care and may God bless you with ALL GOOD THINGS!! :)
Re: How do I change saved password settings? LaVonne Caudle 2/26/13 5:56 PM
James, I just received your email, and was shocked when I read it, because I meant only good things toward you in everything that I said to you..I am sorry you took it all the wrong way. I JUST got your email that says the same as the above paragraph from you, a few minutes ago. And I came right here and hit "Post a Reply" and as soon as I did, it said my message was deleted. Did you delete it, or did it not go through? If you did not receive it, please let me know as I would like to explain how you totally misunderstood what I was trying to say. I hesitate to type it all over again, because I'm not sure where the heck it went, and whether it would just GO TO THE SAME PLACE as the one I just typed! LOL..please response if ur around; I'm curious to see if I see the same thing after I  hit post as just happened, which was "Message was deleted."
Re: How do I change saved password settings? SmileyBri 3/28/13 9:03 AM
Reading this thread is almost enough to make me stop using Google Chrome.

WTF!!!!!!!!!!

1. There is no Tools menu in Chrome on Windows so please designate your Operating System when giving directions to avoid confusion.
2. The wrench is now three lines. I might remember it being a wrench before. I have whatever the latest version is because I keep my browser up to date.
3. There is no "Options" under the only native tools or options button. There is Settings and a Tools fly out menu which still does not display anything called "Options" or "Minor Tweaks" or "Personal Stuff" for that matter.

I appreciate that many of you are trying to help, and it obviously is not your fault that you haven't been helpful. It is Google's fault.

Google: How and why would you develop a product that would ever lead to this confusion? Obviously you have either changed the icons and menus with each version, or you make the product with completely  different menus and buttons for each platform. OR BOTH?

I don't mind change, but you are Google! The company that created and is most known for Google.com. Quick, go to Google.com and then come back and read this thread. Simple vs. Convoluted. I don't use an Android phone, and I know it is now the leading phone platform, but I have heard that it is a lot like this thread as well.

So again.... WTF!

Re: How do I change saved password settings? RIchard Garneau 4/20/13 7:13 PM
with Firebox, whenever I changed a password for a site, it always prompted me to save the new password.  With Chrome I have to enter the new password manually?  Maybe I should go back to Firefox considering Chrome doesn't do something so basic!
Re: How do I change saved password settings? J Money 5/1/13 5:56 AM
In Chrome the wrench icon changed to three lines. Click on that. Then click settings. Scroll to the bottom and select, "show advanced settings". One section is “passwords and forms. Next to “Offer to save passwords I enter on the web” click “Manage saved passwords”. A menu will pop up showing you the sites you have clicked “never for this site”. Just click the x on the right, and the next time it will bring up that menu.
Re: How do I change saved password settings? M. Morgan 7/25/13 6:56 PM
But a website that I have saved passwords on is not on the "never for this site list"   I just updated the password after an account was hacked, and now I can't get chrome to save it again.  i don't get the prompt offering me to save my password...
