Bottom Line

Google Chrome helps in saving the password and corresponding username for the online websites you sign in to. This feature is optional; if you do not want Chrome to save passwords, then toggle and set the option — Offer to save passwords to Off.

Similarly, you can save and manage passwords in Chrome on Android. However, visiting the online password manager portal for complete management would be best.
