    All of a sudden Chrome will no longer remember usernames and passwords. In fact when you go into the Preferences, the passwords box is empty. I am running the most current version (56.0.????) and this just started a month or so ago.

    Any suggestions?

    Get lastpass or keepass?

    In all seriousness, don't bother with built in password remembering of browsers. Remember, what happens if you you have to format or (god forbid) you lose your computer, or you want to use those passwords on another device?

    Get a true password manager, your life will be made easier because of that. And you can thank me later.

    I wouldn't trust those Password Managers, they have vulnerability flaws in them - majority of them store your passwords in plaintext. If you're going to use one, use Google's (can hook it up to an email).
