Google is now making it easier for Chrome users to access payment details and passwords without having to sync.

Chrome users now can sign in to the browser with a single tap, without the need to re-enter credentials or sync. With this, the company has said that it will become simpler and more intuitive for users to access their Google Account information in Chrome.

This new feature will be made available to all Chrome users within the coming weeks. After the update, all users will have seamless access to their payment details and passwords irrespective of whether they had synced or not.

While saving a new password on Chrome, users will be prompted if they want to save it on the device or their Google Account. Saving in the Google Account will allow them to access the password across all their devices, which have the email ID logged in. This feature is aimed at providing users with more flexibility over having access to passwords saved to their Google Accounts.
