At the bottom of the page, in correspondence with the section More saved, you will then find the Internet sites for which you have requested that the access data never be stored. In case of second thoughts, just press on "X" placed next to the name of each site.
I also point out that, again from the same Chrome settings page, you can choose whether to allow the browser to ask you to save the passwords or not and whether or not to enable automatic access, simply by leaving on ON or bringing up OFF the switches at the top.

From there you can also export all the saved passwords by tapping on the appropriate item (only on iOS) that you find below.
See Synchronized Passwords
As I explained to you in my tutorial on how to store passwords on Google Chrome, associating Chrome (as well as Android) to a particular one Google account, you can store passwords online on the named service Google Smart Lock per password. The passwords, in this way, are synchronized on all the devices on which the same Google account is logged in, all in an incredibly simple and fast way.
To view (and manage) the passwords stored online through Google Smart Lock, connected to this web page, log in to your Google account by filling in the appropriate fields on the screen and click on the icon of theeye placed next to the address of the reference site (or app) and its username to view the associated password in clear text.
If you want to remove a given password from the list of those saved, press the button with the dustbin which is on the right, corresponding to each item in the list.
If the feature doesn't interest you, you can also decide to disable the use of the Google Smart Lock password service for your account. To do this, carry on OFF l'interruttore che trovi in corrispondenza della dicitura Smart Lock per password on the Google page dedicated to managing synchronized passwords (the one I reported to you just now). If you do not want to disable the service but prefer to disable automatic access, bring up OFF the appropriate switch that you find next to the item Automatic access, at the section Pref Renze.
Third Party Solutions
What I have indicated in the previous lines are the operations provided by Google that must be performed to be able to see the passwords saved on Chrome. However, if for any reason this should not be feasible, you can still be able to meet your needs by resorting to the use of specific third-party tools, as in the case of Chromepass, for Windows operating systems.
It is in fact a portable nature program that, as the name suggests, allows you to view passwords and related user accounts stored in Google Chrome in a very easy and fast way.
To use it, first connect to the download page of the program, scroll down and click on the download link under the section Feedback. Also download the Italian translation by clicking on the link Italian in the table below. When the download is complete, extract both compressed archives obtained in any Windows location and start the .exe file that was present in the first of them.
In the window that you will then see appear on the desktop, you can view the complete list of login data for each site saved in Chrome, corresponding, respectively, to the columns Username, Password e Origin URL.
If you want, you can also save the data obtained by clicking on the button with the floppy disk in the toolbar. If, on the other hand, you want to intervene individually on a given element, right-click on it and choose the desired option from the context menu that opens.
In Case of Further Problems or Doubts
Despite having strictly followed my instructions on how to see the passwords saved on Chrome, is there something that is not very clear to you yet? Has any hitch arisen during construction that you cannot remedy? I like it a lot! However, you can look at the thing by visiting the online section dedicated toofficial assistance for Google Chrome that “big G” has set up on its website. There you will find numerous articles with useful and detailed information about the operation of the famous browser.
To use it, select the reference category from the central part of the page and then the topic of your interest and consult the additional Web page that opens with all the relevant information. You can also find what you need by using the search bar at the top, typing in the reference keyword and selecting the relevant suggestion from those that appear automatically.
You can also take a look at the Google product forum, through which it is possible to receive support and assistance from Google and other users who, like you, using the company's services. To search for discussions that may interest you, use the bar at the top and then click on the title of the one you want to read from the list that appears (you can also take part in it if necessary).
To conclude, in the unfortunate event that neither the assistance page set up by Google nor the forum should come in handy, I suggest you get in direct contact with big G through one of the support channels available: via phone (calling the number 02 36618300) or by Twitter (by addressing a message to the account @GoogleItalia).
