Several months ago I switched to a new laptop with Catalina on it. On this machine the passwords for sites that used to be stored in the browser are no longer being offered. I have to type them in every time.

Some sites do work properly as far as remembering cookies/logins - e.g. zillow.com - more of them do not. Examples of the latter include utexas.edu and for chase.com. I use Chase frequently and can see it in Google Password Manager:

But I have to enter the password every time anyways

The keychain does seem to be working: I can see plenty of entries in it. Here is recent history:

Also: Offer to save passwords is enabled:

Note that passwords are filled in /remembered for Safari

So why are passwords not being populated on Chrome? I am on macOS Catalina with latest chrome Version 84.0.4147.135

Update Based on comment from @JBallin

Go to your chrome settings. Under"Site Settings" - "Cookies" - you see an "Allow" button. Click on the "add" and then add: accounts.google.com (source) – JBallin 3 hours ago

I was looking for how to "allow" accounts.google.com . I do not see an "allow" button

Update again: now I foudn this under Cookies and other site data - and added accounts.google.com (i had previously added 2 sites that are still not working):

  • Pretty sure Safari/Keychain has nothing to do with Chrome. Keychain only works in Safari and Chrome handles passwords separately. Have you tried signing out of Chrome? Maybe a re-install? Also I'm not sure that this question pertains specifically to Apple - it may make more sense to ask on superuser instead. – JBallin Sep 21 '20 at 16:18
  • @JBallin Thx. This happens only on a catalina laptop - not my mojave laptop or any other version previously : that's why I'm putting it here. I might do that reinstall of chrome. – StephenBoesch Sep 21 '20 at 16:50
  • Here's something to try: Go to your chrome settings. Under"Site Settings" - "Cookies" - you see an "Allow" button. Click on the "add" and then add: accounts.google.com (source) – JBallin Sep 21 '20 at 20:24
  • @JBallin Thx - I do not see an Allow" button. I am adding a screenshot to the question – StephenBoesch Sep 21 '20 at 21:29
  • Don’t you need to click on “Cookies and site data” on the bottom? – JBallin Sep 21 '20 at 21:33
