Does ticking "Remember Me" or "Keep Me Signed In" have something to do about Google knowing my Facebook Password (because they are the owner of Chrome Browser)?

By the way, I'm not syncing my passwords, only other stuffs but not passwords.

If you assume that Google's claims about are true, then Google doesn't ever know your passwords. Even if you sync passwords. Any passwords you sync are encrypted against your account password or the passphrase you define. Why do you think Google knows your password? –  Zoredache May 21 at 23:20
    
We had a similar question about Chrome and this very topic recently. I believe this to be spam so I will flag it as such for that very reason. Infact it was this very user who ask this non-question earlier and that was also closed. here –  Ramhound May 22 at 0:04

Ticking "Remember Me" or "Keep Me Signed In" will set a cookie in your browser. It does not save your password anywhere.

Does that mean Google have no ways of knowing what I typed in Chrome even if they are the owner of Chrome? So it is not sent by the browser to their server secretly (backdoor). –  Me Wowlol May 21 at 21:27

"no ways of knowing" is pretty broad...... –  mdpc May 21 at 21:59

@MeWowlol You're getting into the realm of speculation/opinion/conspiracy. Certainly Google might have the capability of doing this, but it's anyone's guess of how much they take advantage of their capabilities. –  Moses May 21 at 22:17
