How To Find Saved Passwords On Your Android Phone

The number of usernames and passwords you need to remember can get overwhelming with the number of websites, social networking platforms, applications, and other online services you can join. If you don't assign a single password to everything, which you should never, ever do for security and privacy reasons, you'll need a way to access all your logins in a handy list easily.

Access to all the passwords you've ever used and saved on your Android device is quite simple if you have an Android phone. Depending on the apps you have loaded on your smartphone, there are different methods you can use to do it. If your Android mobile device is connected to a Google account, you can access your saved passwords even more quickly than you can do so on other devices where your Google account is signed into the Google Chrome web browser.

You would need to have previously entered a new password on any login page and agreed to the relevant notification to save the login data onto whatever app you were using to access the site to see a list of passwords to browse and review. If not, you can manually add passwords to access later using the techniques below.

Through your go-to mobile browser app

Since Android is a Google product, using another Google product is the simplest way to access any information on your Android device. You typically need to enter usernames and passwords in the web browser, and Google Chrome is the standard mobile browser for most Android phones. Here's how to use the Google Chrome mobile app to access your saved passcodes:

  • Open the web browser application.
  • In the top-right corner of the screen, tap the three dots icon.
  • Access Settings.
  • Select Password Manager.

With a list of previously saved and used passwords that you can tap to examine and a mechanism to check the password strength of any saved logins, a new Password Manager page should appear onscreen. Enter your phone's pin code or touch the fingerprint sensor to open any saved passwords. Once you can see the selected username and password, you can hit the copy or eye icons to reveal the password.

You can save logins for convenience and future use in a ton of additional mobile browser apps that you can acquire from the Play Store, and accessing the list is identical in all of them. Here's how to locate your saved passwords on a few well-known Android browser apps:

Firefox: Three-dot icon > Passwords and logins conserved logins

Three-dot icon > Gear icon (Settings) > Accounts (choose an account if you have one) > Microsoft Edge Passwords

Opera: Personal data > Gear (Settings) > Profile (bottom-right). Passwords

The three-dot icon on DuckDuckGo Logins

Vivaldi: Top-right "V" Icon Gear (Settings) symbol > Keyboard Manager

Three-dot menu in Brave: Settings > Password Manager

Through Google's Password Manager

When you input a password through the browser for various websites, Google Chrome will preserve it using Google's Password Manager. These saved logins are connected to the Google account you have connected to your Android smartphone. You can use whichever mobile browser you have chosen as your default (including Chrome) and go to if, for any reason, you cannot access your password vault via the Google Chrome app's Settings page. You should be taken directly to Google's Password Manager page by doing this. You should log into the Google account connected to your Android phone if you haven't already.

When viewed this way, Google Password Manager's layout should resemble the one that appears after accessing the page using Chrome's settings. Google may request that you enter your Google account password or use your screen lock to confirm your identity. You should be able to view every single password once you've passed through.

Using a shortcut on the home screen

If you want to avoid navigating through Google Chrome's (or any other mobile browser app's) settings to access your list of passwords, you can press a shortcut button. On your Android phone, you can create a shortcut to your saved passwords by carrying out the following action just once:

  • Open the Google Chrome application.
  • Navigate to Settings by tapping the three dots.
  • Press Password Manager.
  • If there are any onscreen instructions, select "Add shortcut" and adhere to them.

This should instantly create a Passwords shortcut to the home screen of your Android phone, which you can hit whenever you need to view a login. If you don't have the Chrome software, open the Settings app on your Android phone and use the search feature to seek up "password manager." You should also be able to access the "Add shortcut" option on Google's Password Manager page by tapping the top result.

Google is one of many firms that can keep track of all the usernames and passwords you use on your Android phone through third-party password manager software. One of the various password managers offered in the Play Store can be downloaded and installed if you prefer a specific app only for storing all of your login information. Bitwarden, Dashlane, Norton, and LastPass are a few of the standout choices.

By upgrading to a paid subscription on your preferred third-party password manager, you may access more premium features, including limitless password storage, multi-device use, advanced two-step authentication capabilities, live chat support, and security reports.

Open the app and provide the necessary identity verification, such as a master password, a fingerprint scan, or by using facial recognition, to gain access to any password stored on a third-party password manager. Please make sure the master password you choose is one you can remember because it will be the one you need to access all other passwords. Once you're in, you should be able to use the search bar to look up a website's specific log in information or access your password list.
