Good news is finally here for all thos people who tend to forget their passwords. Do you often forget passwords or login credentials? If yes, then don't worry you can save all your passwords and login details in Google Chrome. This will help you automatically fill the passwords and login details the next time you visit the sites. All you have to do is make some changes in the settings of Chrome from desktop as well as android phone. You will just need to enable Chrome's built-in password manager on both your desktop and mobile. Want to know how? However, before you proceed, read this warning- while this is an easy way to take the pain out of remembering passwords, just remember, if your account is ever compromised, then all your important passwords can be known to hackers.
