Chrome will allow us to save the passwords in our Google account, with or without active synchronization

Soon we can use our Google account basically as a password manager. Although it is currently possible to synchronize our passwords stored in Chrome across multiple devices, now we can access them with or without synchronization if we save them in our Google account.

The new feature is now available in Chrome Canary 89 behind a flag, and allows us save the passwords in our Google account instead of in the device's password manager.

Move passwords stored on a device to Google account

In addition to this, Chrome will also allow us to move the passwords that we have stored locally on the device to our Google account to log in with our credentials anywhere.

That is, if we move our passwords to the Google account, we will no longer have to use the Chrome synchronization password to access the passwords that we store locally.
