Google Chrome has allowed users to sync their passwords when they sign in with a Google Account, but in future updates, the browser will provide additional controls that allow users to choose more specifically which passwords to store in their Google Account, according tomedia. In other words, users will be able to choose passwords that should not leave the device, and the Google team has tried several ways to achieve this.
Chrome users will be able to select new password controls
One of the new features that Google Chrome will bring is the use of icons that appear on the settings screen, which was found in ChromeStory’s recent submissions.
“Show icons for local passwords and account passwords: This CL adds the icon chapter to each password and exception in chrome://settings/passwords to identify where the item is stored (on this device or in a Google account). The icon will not appear until the EnablePasswordSAccountStore feature (i.e. aka/chrome:// flags/#passwords-#passwords-store) is enabled and the user has selected the account-wide password store.
Further information indicates that Google Chrome will allow users to choose where to save each password, and a dedicated icon displayed next to each password will help determine whether they are saved on the device or in the cloud.
There is no known for the expected arrival time of the feature to be rolled out to the device, but a beta version of Chrome Canary, which is built into it, should be available to testers later this year.
In addition, once this feature is added to Google Chrome, it should also be added to other Chromium-based browsers, including Microsoft Edge , which Microsoft has updated its browser to run on Chromium. And the app is now available on Windows and macOS, and is also scheduled to use the Linux version.
