Hello,

When I initially set-up my master Google account years ago, I clicked "never save password", since I wasn't sure how secure that option was. Speed up till now and I've saved hundreds of passwords in Chrome. Additionally, I now have more than one Google account which I toggle back and forth between and I was able to save my password for them, but I can't seem to figure out how to save my password for the initial account that I declined to save the password for all those years ago. Searching for answers on Google's forums is worthless, since all they want to talk about is saving passwords for websites. I'm talking about my Google account password itself. Scrolling through my list of saved passwords doesn't seem to help either since there doesn't seem to be a listing for the Google account itself, but rather all the websites passwords I've saved. Any ideas?

Thanks very much for the response, but I'm not seeing anything there that helps out with my specific question. I know my password already, I just simply want Chrome to remember it for me going forward, but since I declined initially, I can't seem to figure out how to go back and have it save. Oddly, on my Chromebook at work it is saved, so it seems like it's almost like a local issue with this version of Chrome? That doesn't seem to make sense, but I'm no expert either.

Just below that list is there not a "Never Saved" list? (I use Chrome very little, and there is nothing in my "Never Saved" list.)

I see, my mistake.

I also see 'Never Saved' in Chrome's settings > passwords
There are 2 entries in mine and they can be deleted
