It is generally not a good idea to share passwords. This is because you don’t know if the person you’re sharing the password with might have a compromised device that could be logging keystrokes, or if they might accidentally reveal your password to someone else, which could spell trouble for your accounts.

However, it seems that if you do ever need to share a password, Google could be working on something for Chrome. According to user Leopeva64 on Twitter, they have discovered that Google has included a new “Send password” button in Chrome’s built-in password manager.

It is unclear how this will work because right now, Chrome already lets users copy their passwords so presumably this password sharing feature might be a more secure version. It could be similar to how Google handles file sharing on Google Drive where only chosen users have access, and maybe the actual password won’t be shown and users can click a link to log into a website.

The button doesn’t seem to be working at the moment so it’s safe to say that Google is still working on it, but it’s an intriguing idea and we can’t wait to see how Google could manage password sharing in a safe and secure manner.
