Find saved passwords

When you log into an online account, your browser offers to save your password so you don’t have to type it again in future.

When signing up for a new account, or changing the password on an existing account, your browser may suggest a randomly-generated password which it saves automatically. This is the easiest way to have strong and unique passwords for each of your accounts.

You rarely need to see your saved passwords because the browser fills them in when required. But sometimes you might need to find them, perhaps to delete an old password or to reveal and then copy out a password on another device.
