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!


Because Gmail uses javascript to redirect the page very quickly, we may not have the chance to click "Save Password" on Gmail. Instead, try visiting accounts.google.com. Login there and you'd be able to save your password. Of course, saving it there would mean you can use it when logging into Gmail.

    This solution does not work anymore. – crypdick Dec 4 '16 at 0:19

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:

  1. In chrome > Settings > Disconnect your Google Account.
  2. Log off all gmail sessions that you could have open.
  3. Go to gmail login page.
  4. Type login and password (with @gmail.com recommended) and google will ask you for save it again!
  5. In chrome > Settings > Sign in to Chrome.
  6. 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

Check in your browser that when it wants to save your password you choose correct answer:"Save this Password"

in Setting search password and find this option:

Offer to save passwords I enter on the web

  • The browser offers to save, but doesn't save the password until one actually clicks on the little pop-up button. As the other person said, Gmail is very fast, so the particular problem occurs. – Spandan Chatterjee Dec 24 '12 at 6:17
  • even with this option checked off, you'll still not be able to save password in Gmail – user22105 Dec 24 '12 at 15:42
