Google Chrome not saving passwords

Does your Google Chrome not save passwords to some of the sites you use? Are all of your setting set to save passwords but it still doesn’t even ask to save a password.

This happened to me and it only didn’t work on select sites. Unfortunately all the sites that are company accounts with passwords that are very complex.

The Fix

A file in Chrome eventually went damaged and Chrome stops saving any new data to it. To fix this, just delete this file and Chrome will create a new one that works.


1.) Close Google Chrome completely

2.) Open C:\Users\<insert your username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

3.) Delete the file Web Data

4.) Reopen Google Chrome
