Password management is like any other thing you need to do. But what if you don’t necessarily want to pay too much attention to it? For eons, we’ve had a built-in password manager in Chrome, connected to a Google account. Previously, it seemed a bit outdated compared to competing solutions.

Yes, you will now be able to create a desktop shortcut to Google Password Manager! Surely it will be useful to someone. In addition, it is now possible to authenticate auto-fill or display a password using biometric data, if our stationary device allows it.

Another feature is the ability to easily import logins and passwords in .csv format, for example from a competing service that we decided to opt-out of.

If you need something, now you can add notes to passwords. For example, an additional number is needed for verification or some useful information:

The mobile version also got an update

In addition to searching for and identifying passwords that may have been leaked, the Password Checker feature on iOS systems will now also notify you of weak and reused passwords. Google announces that an update on this will come in the coming months.
