Chromes pw manager issue
« on: November 08, 2019, 04:54:46 PM »

Does anyone have any experience with the Chrome browser? Specifically the password manager area?

I'm trying to look up a password that got saved in the browser. But every time I click on the eye symbol to reveal it, a box comes up, windows security, saying

"Google Chrome is trying to show passwords. Type your windows password to allow this."

I'm trying to bypass this function as I just want to click on the eye symbol and it reveal it, like it does in other browsers.

I looked up on some websites and it says to type chrome://flags in to the address bar and to disable the password manager reauthentication. But I can't find that on the list. As far as I know I dont even have a password set for this computer.

I've found that I can sign in with my hotmail/outlook password. I think at one time I accidently had to use it to login to windows one time.

It seems odd that they previously had a way to disabled chrome asking for the password and now they removed that ability.

Check the group policy template for chrome, the setting might be in there.

chrome:flags is in the process of been gutted :( the dev's have decided to simplify the browser again so barely anything can be tuned, most of the long term tunables are locked down to group policies or undocumented flags.

I checked that after I googled, but the option to disabled password re-authorization seems to no longer be there.

Firefox is becoming as bad with the passwords. They changed the layout so only one shows at a time. Before if I wanted to take a copy of all passwords I could just take screenshots of the browser page. But now I'm not sure how to get them all to display at once, or export them out.
