An infinite number of passwords can be stored on our cell phone. We can find the keys to our social networks, e-mail, bank accounts, wi-fi, among others. However, we no longer use many of them and that is why we want to remove them from our devices, or we simply don’t feel like having them stored there. For this reason, there are various ways to eliminate this information taking into account where they are stored.
There are many locations within our mobile where passwords are stored, the most common is the Google Chorm password manager, but there are also others such as Bitwarden, LastPass, 1Password, Samsung Pass or simply within Android settings. So how do we get rid of all this information?
A.Delete passwords from the web
The first way to clear the passwords you have on Android is by accessing Google’s password manager with the URL passwords.google.com. To do this, you need to log in and in this way you can take a look at the complete list of credentials stored there. Once inside you must follow the following steps:
1.Tap on the account you want to delete.
2.Enter your password to verify your identity.
3.Click on Delete.

The other place where all your passwords appear is in Google Chrome. To remove them from there you should enter the settings from the menu of the three vertical points and do the following:
1.Click on Password Manager.
2.Tap on the account you want to delete.
3.Enter the Google account password to authenticate your identity.
4.Click on Delete.
C Finally, delete a key that you no longer use from the settings
Finally, you should know that in the Android settings there is usually a direct access to the Google password manager. To do this, you must enter the settings app, then go to general administration> Passwords and autocomplete. There, we have had to select the Google account to see the stored passwords. Then, tap on the account you want to delete and click on the Delete button.
