Guide: How to Access Saved Passwords in Chrome

One of Chrome’s handy tools is the Password Manager. It’s free and decently secure. All the information on your saved passwords is saved within your browser. 

But if you’d like to switch to another Password Manager for more security or change old, saved passwords, you can always do so via settings. Besides just checking your saved passwords on the Chrome browser, you can also edit, add, remove, or export and import them.
