If you’re working on a new device, whether on a PC or Mac, the process is the same. You’ll need to ensure that your settings are allowing Chrome to save passwords. Also, keep in mind that when you clear your caches, it could reset to default, and you have to store it again.
You can follow these quick three steps to resolve the issue.
- Click on the ‘Menu’ button in the right corner.
- Select ‘Settings’ from the drop-down menu.
- In the ‘People’ section, click on ‘Passwords.’
- Enable the ‘Offer to save passwords’ feature.
If the setting is already enabled when you get there, try to restart your device. You can also save payment info and passwords manually.
