I am little surprised but google chrome is not saving/showing passwords for certain sites (facebook and google to name few). I remember it was saving this earlier but somehow it is not and I am not sure what has caused this. Any help ? Thanks

EDIT - no sites are in the "do not saved password" list

Have the sites disabled form auto-complete? – Al E. Mar 28 '13 at 13:03

In Chrome's settings (navigate to chrome://settings/ or choose Settings from the... menu?) make sure that you have both "Enable Autofill to fill out web forms in a single click" and "Offer to save passwords I enter on the web" are checked. These are under Passwords and Forms and you'll need to click the link to show advanced settings.

Also check that you are signed into Chrome with the account that you intend on being signed in with and that the sync settings are correct. It could be some weird sync issue where it is saving them until you close and reopen the browser or somesuch.

If all else fails, re-installing Chrome couldn't hurt.

Unfortunately I've got the same problem even though I checked remember my password and etc.

But this worked for me so I share it with you, go to: chrome://settings/content

and check the recommended option for cookies(something with "allow to save locally", I don't remember what it exactly was) and click OK. That helped me.

Here are few things you can try doing.

  • Try deleting existing saved passwords. May be Chrome has a limit on the number of saved passwords.

  • Try re-installing the Google Chrome. It might be a bug

  • Updating Google Chrome to most recent version

1) it doesn't seem to be a limit—I just deleted a few dozen passwords, and a site that used to store 3 username/password combos for me only stores 1 now. 2) )One shouldn't need to update Chrome, as it generally updates itself – Auspex Jun 2 '15 at 19:08

I had "Enable Autofill" and "Offer to save passwords" checked. Also, I didn't see any sites in my "Never saved". What fixed it for me was resetting my settings to the default (there is a button on the bottom of the Settings page, in the advanced section).

I had the same issue with my site. It appeared that email and password input of sign in form had no name attributes. When I added them and refresh page chrome showed me "save password" popup at the same moment

None of these suggestions worked for me. I found a helpful link in the Chrome forum that suggests that this happens because your Chrome profile can become corrupted. Here are the steps to take to create a new profile and get your password saving working again:

Following these steps also caused my previously saved passwords to come back!

Open Internet Explorer and go to your site. When asked to save the password in IE, say 'Yes'. Now go back to Chrome and go to 'settings', now import saved passwords from IE.

Question is about Chrome – vaichidrewar Nov 6 '14 at 7:32
@vaichidrewar You didn't read the whole answer. It was about Chrome, but granted, a very round about way of solving the problem. – Paul Phillips May 25 at 9:21

Reset Sync

While you are signed out you can save passwords.

Clicking on your link takes me to a Google sign-in page, so the link adds no value. The rest of the answer is cryptic. Can you expand your answer and include the essential information from the link? – fixer1234 Aug 20 '15 at 4:22
