Do you want to elevate your browsing experience? A password manager is an excellent tool to increase your login security and allow quick navigation through different accounts. Most password managers operate on the same basic principle — the user sets up a master password that controls all password-protected accounts.

However, some apps have varying features that make them particularly good and effective for Chrome. The following 15 managers can be used directly in Chrome, saving you the hassle of leaving your browser in the middle of an important task.

Show Password

If you want to save your energy and time when logging in to different accounts, ShowPassword is pretty handy. Most websites will hide your login password as you type it.

The Show Password Chrome extension displays the field content of your password while you place your cursor on the field. As a result, you may save yourself some time when logging into your website.
