Let's find out how to take advantage of this convenient shortcut since, at least at the moment, it is not among those that can be inserted starting from the widget menu.
The Mountain View giant offers, both on the Android operating system and on the Chrome browser, a service that allows users to save all the passwords necessary to log in to apps, services and websites, keeping them protected with all security measures that characterize Google accounts.
Among the various possibilities, the Google Password Manager also allows you to generate complex and unique passwords for each account and even check if some of the user's passwords have been compromised (i.e. leaked in data leaks and the like).
As anticipated only a few lines ago, the Google password manager is present on Android but also on the Chrome browser. For those who are not aware of this feature, here is, in the meantime, how to reach it:
- On Google Chrome
- On Android
The novelty introduced this month, which according to a dedicated support page occurs starting from the update to version 22.18 of the Google Play Services, concerns Android smartphones / tablets and allows (interested) users to add a convenient shortcut to the Manager. of Google passwords directly on the home screen of your device.
To do this, after opening the Password Manager by following the path "Settings> Privacy> Google Autofill> Passwords", simply select the gear (located immediately below the Google account avatar) to enter the dedicated settings.
At this point, as you can also see in the following gallery, it will be sufficient to select the new item “Add shortcut to the Home screen”; by tapping, the classic dialog box will open which will allow you to add the shortcut to the home screen (it will be added in the first free slot).
