How To Enable and Use Password Generator in Google Chrome

The Chrome already has a pretty decent password manager built in which is my go-tool to manage my online passwords. But do you know that it also come with a hidden password generator as well?

Here is how you can enable and use it.

Open Chrome, type the following address in the address bar and hit Enter.

chrome://flags/#enable-password-generation

The Chrome’s Flags page opens up with the Password generation setting showing at the top. Change the setting to Enabled from the drop-down list, and click the Relaunch Now button at the bottom of the page to restart the browser.

Now, when you are at a sign-up form next time on a website, you will be prompted with an auto-generated password as soon as you click into the password field.

It works on the sites that work with Chrome’s Password Manager and Auto-Fill, which most of them do. If not, you will still need to come up with your own password.

I’ve tested this on a number of sites, and it works very well. With the combination of the password generation and password manager, it makes things a lot easier using a secure password without worrying about ever forgetting about it.

  1. It’s a useful feature, but the passwords generated are too short. I’d prefer it generated passwords of the maximum possible length for the field.
