This is great if you share a computer with someone else and don’t want Chrome to autofill your account passwords for anyone other than you. However, you will still need a PC or Mac with a fingerprint sensor or facial recognition support to take advantage of this feature. Google says this feature is “coming soon” to desktop.
Google also announced a few other updates to Chrome’s password manager, including a way to add notes next to stored passwords as well as the ability to easily import your passwords from a other manager. Instead of enabling a flag as you had to before, you can now download a CSV file with your account details from another password manager. Via the Chrome settings menu.
Additionally, there is now a dedicated password manager space in the desktop version of Chrome that you can access by clicking New password manager option in the Chrome menu or by selecting Password management When Chrome prompts you to autofill your password. You can now create a shortcut on your desktop that will also take you directly to Chrome’s password manager.
Finally, Google is also making small updates to the Chrome password manager on iOS. This includes a “larger, more clickable prompt for auto-filling your passwords” as well as a new feature in the iOS Password Checker that identifies weak and reused passwords.
