Gmail has become an important part in our daily lives. But you sometimes can’t remember password for your Gmail account occasionally? Don’t worry. This post shows you two ways to remember password for your Gmail account.

Generally speaking, you can tick “Remember me” or something like that when logging into your Gmail, but this doesn’t last forever, and you’ll need to enter the password again after a certain time period.

So you can try the following methods to help remember passwords for Gmail automatically and easily.

How to save Gmail password easily?

  1. Remember Gmail password by your browser
  2. Remember Gmail password automatically

 

Method 1: Remember Gmail password by your browser

Whenever you login your account in your browser, you’ll be prompted if you want to save your password in the browser.

We only recommend to remember passwords in Chrome when you’re using a trusted device. For security concerns, do not remember passwords in Chrome in a public device.

1) Launch Chrome in your device, click the three dots icon at the upper right corner, and select Settings in the drop down menu.

2) Scroll down and click Advanced.

3) In the Passwords and forms section, click Manage passwords.

4) Make sure  to turn on Offer to save passwords at the top of the page, then you’ll be prompted to save the passwords every time you log in a website with your account and password.

5) Turn on Auto Sign-in, so you’ll be automatically signed into the websites using the stored credentials next time.

6) Sign into Gmail with your account and passwords, then Chrome will pop up a dialog at the upper right corner for you to save password. Click Save.

Now you should have your Gmail password remembered. But if you clear your browser cookies, remember not to clear passwords. Once you do, your passwords saved in the browser will also be removed.
