Why You Should Delete Your Passwords on Chrome

The Internet is becoming increasingly insecure as more and more personal information is saved online. If a malicious attacker were to get their hands on your passwords, they could easily access personal information, email, bank statements, and credit card details.


Although the built-in password manager in all modern web browsers allows you to save your passwords with many levels of security encryption, It is recommended to delete your passwords and credentials from the browser, let it be Chrome or other browsers, just delete them!

In this article, we’ll learn why it’s better to delete saved passwords on chrome and how to do it, and also, why using Passwarden to save passwords is a much better option.


Although saving passwords in Chrome has some benefits, like:

  • The password manager is already installed. It is free, so there is no need to pay or install any other software.
  • It works across all your machines and operating systems. Any other device you use with the same browser will be able to access your saved logins in the browser. However, for that to work, you'll need to login in and activate the "sync" option.
  • It creates secure passwords automatically. This helps avoid the temptation to reuse existing passwords.


On the other hand, here are some reasons why you should delete passwords from chrome and never use it to save them again:

  • Hackers could extract the contents of the database from your computer and gain access to ALL of your saved passwords.
  • Web browsers are relatively simple to break into, and a lot of malware, browser extensions, and even trustworthy software can take advantage of this to steal sensitive data.
  • After hackers target remote workers in 2020, experts warned users about using Chrome to save passwords. According to experts, hackers target people who work from home to steal passwords from web browsers.
  • According to a security company's research report, Redline Stealer, a well-known malware program, can easily steal passwords stored on web browsers. After successfully stealing the login information from one employee and sending it to hackers.
  • The username and password you enter will be displayed on the page if your browser or password manager automatically fills in passwords. That poses a serious security risk. Because, in addition to you being able to see those saved passwords, a malicious script that has been embedded in the web page might also be able to.

So, our next question is: Will Chrome delete saved passwords for me?
