This option comes as a pop-up that asks you if you want to save the sign-in information or never save it. Now that you have deleted the website from this list, Chrome will ask if you want to save the password the next time you log onto the site. For example, banking websites prevent passwords from being saved.
However, there is a way around this. Are you having problems with Chrome saving passwords on your Mac? There are a few reasons you could be struggling with this problem, and each is relatively simple to resolve. Another reason Chrome is not saving passwords on your Mac may be because the autofill function is not enabled. The next time you use your Chrome browser, you should see the pop-up asking if you want Google to save your password on a website that requires you to sign in.
However, if you find Chrome is not asking you if you want to save your password, chances are the password saving function is not enabled. Rectifying this is simple:. When you go into Chrome and visit a new website, Chrome should ask if you want to save your password when you sign in. Chrome on an Android phone offers the advantage of keeping your password for new websites you visit.
Enabling Chrome to save your passwords automatically on an iPad is similar to how you would do it on your iPhone. Check out these steps to set up this feature on an iPad:. The steps below will show you how to get Chrome to stop saving passwords. After turning off this function, Chrome will no longer ask you if you would like to save your password on a site that requires you to sign in.
You can easily apply these steps to any of the devices mentioned above. We showed you easy ways like Google backup codes and making screenshots of the secret keys. You also know now how to extract the Google Authenticator data manually , transfer Google Authenticator to another phone and even shut off the two-factor verification if you happen to need to. So now you do not have any excuses not to protect your info better. All that is left to do is come up with proper user passwords which are not the name of your cat!
Author: Maxim Oliynyk. He worked in the IT industry for many years. One fine day, he had an idea to create a convenient and affordable two-factor authentication service. He gathered a group of talented like-minded people. And — voila! Protectimus is born! After a little more time and effort, not only is Protectimus not in any way inferior, it is often superior as compared to former industry leaders. Hello Maxim, I have a situation. Google Auth on it. Of course, lost backup and QR.
Have another Galaxy note 5. Can not log on the the site because 2FA is turned on. Should have stayed with SMS auth. Crypto Site support has been unresponsive. If i load Google Auth. Will new phone take over Google Auth from old phone? Or is it encrypted based on the EIN? If I an i spoof the new note 5 EIN will it generate authorization to paired crypto web site? Or is there an app that will display a dead screen on PC just by plugging into the mini usb? Worst case,…i will replace the display and problem solved.
Just wondered if any other less expensive ways to do it! Besides saving backup!! I am stupid. Any help for me? Thanks in advance. Hi Chris! Thank you for reaching out. For the future, the easiest backup approach is saving secret keys for every website where you use two-factor authentication.
Or, at least, for the most important websites for you. You can save the screenshots with the QR codes, or write down the secret keys, or use Protectimus Slim NFC tokens, which is probably the most reliable option. I suggest contacting the support team of your cryptocurrency website one more time. It could be possible if your phone was rooted. The tokens work flawlessly, the only this is that they are a bit fragile as they are designed to be carried in a wallet or cardholder.
Thing is, phones frequently get lost or stolen. If a salesperson is on the road, and they lose their phone, the first thing they are going to want to do is login to secure their Google account as we are keeping more and more of our assets in google these days. The other thing people use is the USB key style devices, but I think they tend to get stuck in laptops and left there. Then the laptop gets stolen on the airport TSA line, and… catch again.
A little confusing. I already have Google Authenticator installed on my andriod phone and I use it daily. I have not lost my phone yet but this is very important in case I do lose it or it breaks. Please tell me: if I should lose my phone or it breaks, would I download Google Authenticator again?
You can see the secret key QR code and save it only once — at the moment when you create the token. Now if something happens to your smartphone you will easily disable 2-step authentication and restore access to your Google account. But please note, if you use Google Authenticator app for any other website Dropbox, Facebook, any payment system ect. What can you do to backup the secret keys for all other websites where you use two-factor authentication? You can log into every account using current tokens, disable or delete two-factor authentication, and then enable 2-factor authentication one more time and create new tokens, saving the secret keys this time.
Hello, you should definitelly edit the article and clarify this. I was also consufed not to find any backup option in my Authenticator app. It seems the Google Authenticator backup codes and screenshots of the secret key have the same vulnerabilities — They are only as safe as the paper its written on.
The token works very well and is ideal for my needs. I invest in cryptocurrency and use the Google Aunthenticator for the 2-step verification. Last week I upgraded to a new iphone, but with the same number. After connecting my iphone to my computer and restoring the backup, the Google Authenticator was not working. I downloaded it again and it keeps asking me for the barcode or enter manually. I searched my emails for a screen shot of it, but nothing.
What can be done and why when I restored my phone does the google authenticator no longer work? Kind Regards, James. Hello James! There should be a way to restore access to every legal website. I am really happy to give you a piece of my knowledge. Another option for backups is Authy you briefly mentioned it, but not in depth.
Yes, part of the authentication method that it uses is SMS which is technically against best standards for 2FA. What it excels at is the ability to back it up automatically. You can set your own encryption key as well. The methods that you mentioned are good if you always follow best practices for security; but the average user will never do so. The chances of your secrets being lost through Google Authenticator is astronomical compared to the chances of a breach in a service like Authy.
Not all sites support hardware authentication I love my Yubikey; but very few services that I use 2fa on support it. Yes, my phone is encrypted… but the problem with phones is that people myself included leave them on all the time — which means it will most likely be in a decrypted state when it is obtained by another party.
With Authy, I can set it to require my encryption key whenever I open the app — meaning the secrets are much less likely to be compromised unless the attacker can brute force or guess my encryption key. From that respect, Authy has some security advantages over GA. The best security mechanism is the one that people use — which means it needs to be easy to use.
Thank you very much for the feedback. Though not only Authy has a backup function. For example, Authenticator Plus offers backup in its paid version, and we are working on adding a backup feature to our own Protectimus Smart OTP app, the release coming soon.
Recently we compared 10 most popular 2-factor authentication apps and tried to figure out which one is the best. You also wrote that not all sites support hardware authentication and very few services that you use 2FA on support Yubikey. Dear Roman, thank you for the feedback. When I wrote this article, I meant that people would read it before they lose their phones.
Fortunately I can still access the authenticator from my old phone but I am having difficulty in transferring to my new phone. Do you have any advice? Hi Cian! But you can disable and re-enable two-factor authentication on other accounts as far as you have the old phone at hand. The only thing I can suggest in this situation is to download the backup codes and use them if something goes wrong.
Do you know if this will be the case or if my accounts will then transfer over to my new phone? It is like opening a new authenticator. What has went wrong and can I recover them? Please advise. Unfortunately, there is no way to restore all the tokens you had. Or use the backup codes for websites, which offer this option. If you downloaded the backup codes beforehand, of course.
I have to thank you very much Maxim you have given me some valuable info on how I can store my backup as I am using google authenticator and by screenshots, I have a big chance to rest if it happens that I lost my phone. Thank you once again. Thank you for the awesome feedback. I have backup codes from google apps. Thank you for the comment. I just restored backup of my iphone 4 to my iphone 4s and my google authenticator is not showing any code.
Can anyone guide me how can I extract codes of website from back up of iphone4, it is dead and I have only 1 month old backup. On my personal accounts, I had set up and used Authy for quite some time. This is the first time I have changed out a phone since I have been actively working on the cloud. The Authy transfer to a new phone was pretty straightforward and easy and I retained access to all my accounts. Not so good with Google Authenticator.
You can create a set of backup tokens but those are only good for the Google site itself. From now on I will instruct all users to set up an Authy account. Its more of a process than GA is to set up, but way more secure and the process for back-ups etc WAS thought out with customers in mind. Thank you for the comment, Tom.
And of course, there are much better 2FA apps with backup features on the market — Authy, Authenticator Plus, Protectimus Smart are among them. I have read that iPhone users have successfully restored their entire Google Authenticator configuration through their iCloud backup, i.
Is this possible through any Android backup utilities? I am assuming the default Google backup does not work. Maybe you need to use something like Titanium Backup with root-access? Yes, the QR code is the permanent secret key seed , used to generate one-time passwords according to the TOTP algorithm. The app scans the QR code and saves this secret key. Then the app will use the secret key and the current time interval to generate one-time passwords. Thank you for the feedback, Shawn. There are too many websites in the world that use 2-factor authentication and allow using Google Authenticator.
Thus, it requires enormous efforts and time to describe the specific process to backup each 2FA account. If you have a secret key in this form, you can add it to Google Authenticator manually. Please, let me know if this advice is useful for you. Hi Maxim. Thanks for the article. The pulling out keys through adb was what I was looking for! I am not sure if this is a recent thing, but maybe you can update the article with this information.
I think the best way to back up Google Authenticator is to save the the actual keys text strings. I keep the GA keys for my 2fa accounts in an encrypted file in the cloud. It showed only the QR code. The app showed the text string and I copied it down.
What happens if you physically lose the credit card token protectimus? Can you just order a new one, or is your account gone? Hi Rick! The secret key is stored on the card only. To avoid such situations, you better save the backup codes, or enroll two tokens with the same secret key a hardware token, and a software token , or store the screenshot of the secret key in a very safe place.
Everything is very open with a really clear explanation of the issues.
