Google Chrome’s built-in password manager helps store passwords within the browser for quick access. The browser is reportedly getting a new feature that will allow users to send saved passwords in Google Chrome.
As spotted by Leopeva64 and first reported by 9to5Google, Google has added a new “send password” button to Chrome. The feature is not live right now. Once live, it will allow Chrome users to share passwords with other people within the security of the browser.
Chrome developers have reportedly added the send password button under an overflow menu next to each username and password combination. The browser already has a copy password button. The new feature is likely to take things a step further. As the button is not live, not much can be said about how it will work.
Meanwhile, Google is testing a new feature to add notes for the passwords saved in the Chrome password manager. The feature is available to a few users as a test and is not widely available. The new feature was spotted by a Reddit user (u/Leopeva64).
This feature can be seen as a simple ‘Note’ field under the username and password fields. This option can be seen when you edit an existing password or add one for the first time. The feature will help users give context to an account that has already been added by a user. The note section can have security questions, small information, which can help you remember the details of the account.
