How to Fix Google Password Manager Not Loading

If Google Password Manager is not working correctly, don't panic! This section will guide you through four troubleshooting solutions to get your saved passwords back online.

  1. Fix 1. Clear Cache and Cookie
  2. Fix 2. Re-enable Password Manager
  3. Fix 3. Log out and Log in again
  4. Fix 4. Reinstall Chrome Browser

Fix 1. Clear Cache and Cookie

Google Password Manager can encounter unexpected problems when old browser data, such as cache and cookies, are present. Websites use cookies to remember your preferences, track your activity, and store them on your computer. Alternatively, a cache stores website files so that future visits load faster.

While helpful, outdated versions can cause glitches. To fix this, you need to clear caches and cookies. Here are the steps:

Step 1. Identify the "three vertical dots" that are placed in the upper right area of the Chrome browser. From the menu, select "Settings."


Step 2. In the Settings page, find the "Advanced" section and scroll down until you find it. Choose these options for Click-to-Expand. Tap on the "Clear browsing data" option and select it. This will open a new pop-up window.

Step 3. Choose the "Advanced" tab in the pop-up box. 

Step 4. Ensure that only the following options have checkmarks beside them:

  • "Cookies and other site data"
  • "Cached images and files"

Once you've verified the selections, click the "Clear data" button.


Check if your Google Password Manager is loading now.

Fix 2. Re-enable Password Manager

Sometimes, the best solutions come along, which are simple but are the best for resolving a problem. To be sure Google Password Manager is causing the trouble, let's re-enable it with quick steps:

Step 1. Open Chrome browser, and in the top-right corner, click three dots. 

Step 2. Make sure to go to "Passwords and Autofill" in the menu that just came up. You may be asked to re-enter your Google account's password.


Step 3. Now, when you need to adjust your Passwords, locate the settings. They will be labeled "Offer to save passwords" and "Sign in automatically." Turn on both switches.


Step 4. Test it by creating a new account on any website. Chrome should prompt you to generate a strong password.

Step 5. Visit a familiar website and try logging in. Your password manager should automatically fill in the details you saved.

Step 6. If your browser is already on, deactivate the "Offer to save passwords" and "Sign in automatically" functions. Then, re-enable these options. This is one of the simplest refresh options that often fixes unexpected errors.

Fix 3. Log out and Log in again

Sometimes, the most straightforward answer is the best answer! By logging out of your account and then logging in again, you can quickly fix a lot of the random errors that sometimes pop up on Google Password Manager. Here's how:

Step 1. Make sure to save any open work in your Chrome browser. Logging out will temporarily terminate all your sessions.

Step 2. Tap the menu icon on the Chrome toolbar on the browser's top right corner.

Step 3. Choose the option to sign out of your Google account. To do so, open Gmail and click your profile picture, then select “Sign out.”


Step 4. Close all Chrome windows. Open Chrome again and log into your Google account again. This will trigger a new data synchronization.

Check if you can now view saved passwords on Chrome as expected.

Fix 4. Reinstall Chrome Browser

Try this last alternative if the previous fixes have failed to resolve your password manager issues. Passwords, history, and other data are linked to your Google account, so a fresh Chrome installation can clear out stubborn problems without losing valuable information.

Follow the standard uninstallation procedure to uninstall your Chrome browser. Once uninstalled, go through these steps:

Step 1. Now, head to Google Chrome's official website and download the latest version of it.

Step 2. Run the installer file by clicking "Next" after downloading it.

Step 3. Since Chrome has already been downloaded, the first step is to log into your Google account. This will automatically sync your saved passwords and other data.

Now, check if your Google Password Manager is back in working order. If none of these fixes help, go back to the alternative method so that you can get your passwords back quickly.
