How to Use Chrome Password Generator to Generate Secure Passwords?

According to statistics, Google Chrome is the most used web browser on the planet and I bet you're no exception. I know I'm not. But what most people, even the ones who have been using Chrome for years, don't know is that Google's top browser has a built-in random password generator. And extremely handy tool, this password generation feature can create long, complex and 100% random passwords on the spot whenever you encounter a password field. So if you want to sign up for a new social media, or update your Facebook's password Google Chrome can do that for you.

You may be wondering why you don't know about this feature. Well, it's simple. Google hasn't enabled it yet as it's still in the testing phase. So if you're interested in it and want to give it a try you'll have to enable it manually, but don't worry. It's pretty easy! I'll guide you through the process.

To activate the Chrome password generator tool you must first sign into your Google Account before you do anything else. So launch Google Chrome and type "chrome://settings" in the URL field and continue. Once there find the Settings, and you'll see the option that says "Sign in to Chrome". Your next step is to make sure that the password feature is activated. If it isn't, check the box. This will let Google Chrome sync the passwords that you generate using the password tool After you're done here type "chrome://flags" in the URL and hit Enter. You will find that the settings are set to default. Use the drop-down menu to change them to enable them. Once you've activated the password feature you'll have to head down and press the "Relaunch Now" button. And that's pretty much it, your Google Chrome's password generator feature is now enabled.

From this point onward whenever you run into an empty password field you can use Chrome to automatically come up with seemingly random and complex passwords. You don't need to worry about remembering it because the password feature will automatically synchronize it with your Google Account. I would like to remind readers that flag features are still in the development phase and may not be 100% optimized or even functional for some users.
