how to add google password manager to home screen

On Android devices, Google now lets you add its password manager on the home screen of your Android or tablet. Google Chrome is one of the most popular browsers and it is packed with great features. Additionally, it comes with a built-in password manager that saves and syncs all your login details across devices. The touch-to-fill of this feature allows you to login effortlessly to various apps, services and websites from the bottom sheet that pop-up when a saved password is available.

It also helps in generating unique passwords for each account to maintain the security of all your accounts. Outside of this, it even checks whether any of your current passwords have been compromised or not.

Unlike a third-party standalone password manager, Google’s password manager doesn’t offer a native app. Apart from this, you need to delve into the deepest part of Android settings to manage or access your saved login credentials.

It is a piece of good news that Android is not getting a handy shortcut in the form of a multi-coloured key which enables you to access the saved login credentials directly from the home screen of your Android device. It is much easier and better to access the Google Password Manager than the web app and dive deep into the settings of the Android device. By using your device’s biometrics or screen lock, you can unlock passwords that you have saved. Generally, the web app requires you to enter your Google Account password.
