There are several reasons to turn off the Chrome password manager on your device(s). Maybe you want Chrome to stop asking to Save password because you don’t want it to store your credentials. Or perhaps you’re already using a dedicated password manager that conflicts with Google Chrome’s built-in one. Besides, the constant prompts can become annoying. Luckily, it’s easy to turn off the Google password manager in any operating system.
