Adjust password settings on your Samsung Chromebook

Password settings on Samsung Chromebook

You need a Google account to use a Chromebook and other connected Google services, like Gmail. In addition, your passwords can be saved to your Google account and anytime you are required to enter a password, Google Chrome will autofill the password. You can set which sites or specific passwords you want Chrome to remember.

Change the password for your Google and user account

On a Chromebook, your Google account password also acts as your user and login password. To change this password, you will need to go into your Google account settings.

  1. To change your user account password, open the Chrome browser.

  2. Select your account image on the top right.

  3. Select Manage your Google Account.

  6. Enter your current account password, and then select Next.

  7. Enter your new password twice, and then select CHANGE PASSWORD.

Adjust password settings for websites

When using the Chrome browser, you can choose to save passwords for different websites, so you won't forget them later. If you ever want to delete or change a saved password, you can do so at any time. You can also remove websites you accidentally added to the Never save my password list.

  1. To change your user account password, open the Chrome browser.

  2. Select your account image on the top right.

  3. Select Manage your Google Account.

  7. To edit saved passwords, select the website with the password you want to remove. Enter your current Google account password, and then select Edit. Edit the password as needed, and then select Save in the top right corner.

  8. To remove a website from the Never saved list, select the Settings icon in the right top corner. Scroll to the Declined sites and apps section, and then select the X next to the website you want to remove from the list. You can now save passwords for that website.
