A password manager for your smartphone can make your life much easier. Remembering passwords can get tricky when you use a different one for every account you have. This is where a password manager can be of tremendous help. Your Android smartphone uses Google’s password manager as default.

You can view all your passwords in one place if you ever need to log in using another device. In this article, we bring you two ways to view saved passwords on your Android smartphone.
