Final thoughts

Google Password manager can also help you manage passwords. The Password Manager interface shows you the passwords stored in your Google account.

It’s accessible on Chrome browsers on PC and mobile. Yet, we shouldn’t depend on technology alone to secure our login credentials. It’s ideal to have written copies of your passwords too.

This will serve as an offline backup to the digital password managers. However, you must ensure nobody can find your written passwords.
