Google Chrome is quick, works for lots of websites. But I found out that it would not save my password when I log into Gmail!
If you are signed into Chrome with same account, Chrome won’t ask to save the password. Following these steps you can force Chrome to ask "save password" again:
- In chrome > Settings > Disconnect your Google Account.
- Log off all gmail sessions that you could have open.
- Go to gmail login page.
- Type login and password (with @gmail.com recommended) and google will ask you for save it again!
- In chrome > Settings > Sign in to Chrome.
- Allow Chrome to sync the data (bookmarks, passwords...)
And that's it! Enjoy!
I've found the solution in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bvb1lK1Felo
Here is the latest solution on Google Official https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/10500247?hl=en. Just add those passwords in CSV which are to be imported. Moreover for format, you can Export Current passwords and delete everything except header, now add desired password. After this upload CSV as specified in the link above.
For the past few years Chrome has not offered to save Google passwords no matter what I've done. I believe this is because they are pushing users to use profiles and turn on "Allow Chrome sign-in".
Please note, this problem is specific only to Google sites and my passwords are saving fine on every other domain.
My solution was to simply open the password manager and click "Add" to add them manually, using "accounts.google.com" as the domain. This may be a cumbersome solution for some but for me there there are only a couple so it was easy enough.
