Google Chrome comes with a built-in password manager that allows you to save and sync all your website logins. But if you’re using a dedicated password manager, the persistent “Save Password” prompts in Chrome can be annoying. Here’s how to turn them off.
Every time you log in to a new website, the web browser will automatically load a popup message asking if you want to save the username and password in Chrome. In doing so, your username and password will be synchronized between devices associated with your Google account.
You can disable this save login popup for Chrome on Windows 10, Mac, Android, iPhone and iPad. The steps to do this vary by platform.
Disable ‘Save password’ popups in Chrome desktop
You can turn off the “Save Password” popup message once and for all in the “Passwords” section of the Settings menu in Chrome for Windows and Mac. To get there, open the Chrome browser on your computer, click on your profile icon on the right side of the Chrome toolbar and choose the passwords button (which looks like a key icon).
Now enable the option “Offer to save passwords”.
Chrome will immediately turn off the annoying login save pop-ups.
Disable Save Password popups in Chrome for Android
When you log in to a new website in Chrome for Android, you will see a “Save password” prompt at the bottom of your smartphone or tablet screen.
You can turn this off by going to the Settings menu. To get started, open the Chrome app on your Android device and tap the three-dot menu icon in the top toolbar.
Select the option “Settings” here.
Navigate to the “Passwords” section.
Tap the switch next to the “Save Passwords” option.
Chrome for Android will now no longer bother you with storing usernames and passwords in your Google account.
Disable Save Password popups in Chrome for iPhone and iPad
The steps for disabling the save login popup are different when it comes to iPhone and iPad app.
From here, open the Chrome app on your iPhone or iPad and tap the three-dot menu icon in the lower-right corner.
Choose the option “Settings”.
Go to the “Passwords” section.
Enable the option “Save passwords”.
Chrome for iPhone and iPad will now no longer prompt you for “Save password” after each new login. But don’t worry, you can still access all existing Chrome passwords.
