Google Chrome comes with a built-in password manager that helps you save and sync all your website logins. But if you use a dedicated password manager, the insistent “Save Password” prompts in Chrome can be annoying. Here’s how to disable them.

Every time you log in to a new website, the web browser will automatically load a pop-up message asking whether you want to save the username and password to Chrome. In doing so, your username and password will be synced between devices that are linked to your Google Account.
