      Did you ever find a way to get Chrome to save CHANGED passwords?

      It is very frustrating that once I’ve removed a saved username and password (because my library account was hacked!), I have to type them in by hand every time from now on, because there’s no way to ask Chrome to remember log-in information once I’ve removed them.

        Oh ! I really need to check this one 🙂 I will post it if I find it ..

          Switched to beta channel at Dinu’s suggestion (thanks!), but it still doesn’t have an option for resetting passwords. Here’s hoping that will make it into the next update.

          • chrome story 01/05/2009, 8:59 am

            did you restart after changing to beta ??????
            try that ..
            and also try the above method, reset that password and try

            and for me, it worked only after few tries.. so .. wait n watch

    ummm… how about how to tell google that a page that you told it in the past to never ask to store a password for is one that you now want to store a password? I want to store a password for a previously ignored page but thers no option to do that…

    • chrome story 26/03/2009, 5:19 pm

      you can do this from the same menu that explained here … 🙂

      • David 13/09/2010, 6:30 pm

        All that did was just offer me to delete my saved user name and password, I did it to try and see if it will offer to save it again, but it still won’t. Is there a way that I can force chrome to offer to save my password?

  • patricia smith 14/03/2012, 8:26 am

    i dont know computers but when i look in personal it doesnt have my password for my yahoo email saved i might have hit never save by accident now it wont ask to save it since i changed it when i typs in yahoo to see if anything comes up it doesnt show anything saved for this how can i get it to save my password for my mail i dont want to delete all my saved passwords as i dont remember alot of them

  • sprite 26/09/2013, 8:40 am

    have same problem as patricia. never get the option to save password for FB/Yahoo, but they saved on firefox no problem.

    also, more importantly… the latest release of chrome does not follow the steps in your list. it is now menu–>settings–> new tab opens, scroll to bottom, choose ‘advanced settings.’

    there is nothing in my ‘never save password’ box, but very few of the sites i use will save passwords.

  • Dave 23/10/2013, 3:11 am

    I also cannot force Chrome to save a password. I deleted the saved password and I am not prompted to save the password anymore. If anyone has a solution, please post!! BTW, Chrome is up to date, and the site is NOT in the “never save password” list. Thanks!

  • Jigar Vora 06/01/2014, 4:58 pm

    I Have Got It.
    Click On Setting -> Clear Browsing Data -> Click Saved Password.
    Simply Clear It. And Restart Chrome.
    Next Time It Will Ask You To Save Passwrod Or Not.
    Enjoy …. !
