Google Chrome Dev Channel Gets Password Syncing

Chrome can sync a lot of things, but it couldn’t sync passwords for the longest time. We saw hints of it back in May, but as of today the Chrome Dev version has an official option to sync passwords between different Chrome installations, using your Google Account.

Just head to Chrome’s Preferences > Personal Stuff > Sync to enable it. You can also encrypt them with a passphrase, which is nice. We don’t know if it’ll replace LastPass as our go-to password syncer, but for those of you not using LastPass it’s a great feature to have. There’s no official announcement from Google at the moment, so just download the dev version (if you haven’t already) to check it out. [via ReadWriteWeb]
