Product manager Patrick Nepper wrote on the company blog : “ Google Password Manager instantly generates unique passwords and automatically fills them out when you sign in to your Google account in Chrome from a computer, Android or iOS device. Today, we’re introducing five new features that will make the password manager even more secure, useful, and easy to use .”

Google Password Manager will get a dedicated space in Chrome’s settings, making it easier to navigate to saved online credentials or change password settings. You can access it by selecting the “Password Manager” setting from the Chrome menu, or by opening the Chrome settings and selecting the “Autofill and passwords” section. For even faster access, it will even be possible to create a special shortcut on the Windows desktop .

The next news is biometric authentication. Google Password Manager already supports this feature on mobile devices, but it’s now rolling out to desktops so that PC users can authenticate with Windows Hello.

With password notes, the user will be able to add a note to any password saved in the Google password manager. This can be useful if you use multiple accounts for the same site, or if you need to store your PIN, account name, or any other information associated with an account.

For a long time, Chrome had limited options for importing passwords. It will now be possible to import passwords from other password managers in CSV format using the desktop version of Chrome. Export instructions from various password managers can be found on the company’s website .

Finally, the Password Checkup feature will appear on iOS devices. This feature for securing saved passwords is available on desktop computers and Android. It will let you know if any of them have been hacked, are weak, or are being reused, and help fix any issues that have arisen.
