The Best Password Vault for Google Chrome

Effortlessly save, access, and manage passwords in one, secure place.

What is a password vault?


A password manager stores all your passwords and other essential information in a password vault. Think of it like a physical safe but for your online valuables.

When using Google Chrome, your password vault is your home base for everything you’ve saved including passwords, secure notes, and credit card information. Usually, you can manually add your passwords to your vault, or it will automatically capture account passwords when you enter them on every website as you browse in Google Chrome.

From your password vault, you can launch websites, edit login information, add notes, share login information, and more.

What information can my vault store securely?

Password vaults save usernames and passwords of course, but what else can they store?

Payment information

Securely save credit cards in your password vault to make paying bills and shopping online easier. You can create profiles for different cards and autofill that information when you go to pay. No more searching for your wallet.


Personal and family information

Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers – this is all information you often need to know about your family members – and it’s not safe to text or email it. Storing it in your password vault helps you share it securely.


Securely shared private information

Teams at work often have to share credentials to sites and applications. You can store those credentials in your password vault and share them securely. No more passwords on sticky notes or in text messages. Add them to your vault!

What sites should I save in my password vault?

Banking

Keep your financial life secure by saving all your banking logins in your password vault (e.g., checking, 401(k), and investment accounts). Also, take advantage of two-factor authentication when available.

Email

Your email is the door to your digital world, so keep it safe. Storing your email password in your password vault helps you create a strong password and rotate it more frequently for safe measure.

Social media

Social media sites contain a lot of personal information that hackers love. Create strong, unique passwords for these sites and save them in your Chrome password vault.

Why do I need a password vault?


Unfortunately, security breaches are becoming more and more common, and it’s almost impossible to keep your information safe without the help of an online vault.

According to the 2018 Verizon Data Breach Report, 8% of breaches are due to weak or reused passwords. And for everyday people, stolen passwords are a leading cause of cybertheft. Passwords are the weak link when it comes to your online security – mostly because they are hard to remember. Your password vault eliminates this problem and allows you to store and use unique, strong passwords.

This is particularly important for businesses as employees have so many account logins to remember, and they often need to share passwords between coworkers. There is no good way to do this securely without storing this information in a password vault.

Should I use Chrome’s password vault?


If you’re using Google Chrome, you may be using the browser password manager to save and fill logins for different websites. The built-in password manager saves you time and the hassle of remembering every password.

When it comes to protecting yourself online, you need more. You deserve to protect your data – and your money – with the best password manager. A standalone password manager like LastPass gives you more security with features like password sharing, a password generator, and automatic backup and sync to all your devices.

How secure is the LastPass vault?


At LastPass security is our number one priority. With local-only encryption, your data is encrypted and decrypted at the device level. Data stored in your vault is kept secret, even from LastPass.

Your master password, and the keys used to encrypt and decrypt data, are never sent to LastPass’ servers, and are never accessible by LastPass.

We are also SOC 2 Type II and SOC 3 compliant. This detailed review of our controls and processes is a “gold standard” for confirming the security and reliability of LastPass.

How to deactivate your Chrome password vault and switch to LastPass


LastPass will store your Google password so you can sign onto any device or platform where you access Chrome.

  1. Make sure you are signed into your Chrome browser with your Google account
  2. In the Chrome Settings menu under 'Autofill', click on the 'Passwords' drop-down and switch the toggle off so Chrome no longer offers to save your passwords.
  3. Switch the second toggle off for "Auto Sign-In" so that LastPass can take over filling your credentials on all our favorite sites.
  4. To ensure all your existing saved passwords transfer over to LastPass, export your previously saved passwords and logins into a CSV file
  5. You can then import the file to LastPass
