Google Chrome for Android Updated With Password and Autofill Sync

chrome android

Chrome for Android received an update today which includes both password and autofill sync, two features that were previously only available in the beta build of the app. Now, as you sync all of your devices from PC to tablet to phone with your Google account, your passwords and autofill history will come along for the ride. The rest of the update brings performance and stability updates along with a fix for random blank page loads. 

  • Password Sync
  • Autofill Sync
  • Fixed issue where blank page would be loaded rather than URL
  • Performance and stability improvements

    Does this correct the blank page issue with phones with adblock?

  • TheDrunkenClam

    Let me guess…
    The bookmarks widget still does not display the thumbnail previews for pages, and leaves you with a grid of ugly blank gray squares.
    Meanwhile, with the stock android browser’s bookmarks widget, as soon as you click on a page from that widget, it captures and displays the thumbnail preview.
    Why they refuse to fix this, I’ll never know.

    I’ll say this… since the new update, mobile ads on this site doesn’t choke down my phone anymore. droid RAZR m

    Why does this update want to change my audio settings and take pictures whenever it wants to?

  • Piotr G.

    I use Chrome all the time and always wished I had my lastpass extension passwords on mobile. My worries are now gone!

  • PhoenixPath

    G+ updated today as well. Nothing show-stopping (that I can see anyway).

  • moelsen8

    needs quick controls!

    I wonder if you can import passwords from Lastpass to Chrome somehow…

    • pblakk

      Apparently you can… http://superuser.com/questions/271369/sync-firefox-and-chrome-passwords

      https://helpdesk.lastpass.com/tools/exporting/

      one of those should work. if not just sync with Firefox for a one time thing, and delete it when you’re done syncing to Chrome, if you don’t already have it installed.

      Might not be what you’re looking for, but you can create a Lastpass bookmarklet that will let you sign into sites while using your mobile device (provided you don’t want to pay for Lastpass Premium and use their included browser). It’s not as smooth as the Lastpass extension in the desktop version of chrome, but it gets the job done in a pinch.

        thanks, to pblakk too, will check out both of these options

    I just want them to fix the performance issues. Slow as hell on my Bionic. Got worse after the last update, and this one isn’t showing yet.

    The stock browser is still faster, although they (google) broke its labs quick controls in 4.2.2, and refuse to even acknowledge it (having accessibility options on, for apps such as light flow cause the problem).

    • JetBlue

      Why would they acknowledge it when the Stock browser is no longer being supported due to Chrome replacing it

  • Austin Warren

    I always forget my passwords so this will help.

  • Tim242

    Full screen, or GTFO!

    • Justin Winker

      It’s available in the beta (though in a round-about way). I wish it were actually fully built in, though.

      • Tim242

        Yeah, but it constantly resets. I can’t believe they are taking so long on such a simple, yet most requested feature.

        • Austin Warren

          Full screen really doesn’t add much does it?

          • Tim242

            Yes it does! I do not want to see the status bar while browsing.

          • Austin Warren

            Ah, I see. So if there is full screen, you just pull down to put a new link in?

          • Tim242

            The address bar is still there, just not the status bar with your clock and signal. The stock Android browser has it. Enabling it on my Note 2 was the first setting I touched.

          • Austin Warren

            Ohhhhhhhh, that, haha i always thought they meant the search bar. Thanks for the calm answer. Unlike some of the other people here.

          • Tim242

            I’m trying to stay calm on here. Getting worked up over this stuff is not good for you. I sometimes slide though. That being said, I will forever be calm with you haha

          • Austin Warren

            I understand. Just some of the ignorance i see, i always wonder if schools are teaching kids anything these days.

            I concur. What the heck is the big deal about 1mm of extra realestate? I never even used fullscreen mode on the stock 4.x browser.

          • Tim242

            On the Note 2, it’s 8mm.

          • pblakk

            It’s decent, especially if you simply browse a lot or read long articles…

    • pblakk

      use Dolphin or something, or STFU.

      • Tim242

        I shouldn’t have to. It is the most simple and most requested feature. Google promised it over a year ago. Until then, I’ll use the stock browser

    • Radgatt

      I just saw this comment on another android site…

      • Tim242

        And…???

    • feztheforeigner

      Don’t forget quick controls!
