First, open the Chrome browser on your phone and click on the hamburger icon (three vertical dots). Go to settings and click passwords.
You will see all your saved passwords in a scrolling list.
To access any saved password, use the search bar at the top and enter a website name or scroll through the list of domains. Click on the username and black dots will appear instead of the password.
