Chrome for Android is about to get a much needed feature that will see mobile users enjoy the ability to sync passwords between their Chrome installation on their desktop or notebook, to their Android device - something that has been available on Chrome for iOS for a while now, funnily enough.
At the moment, Chrome syncs bookmarks and other data but it is only recently that passwords have become something Google want synced - and it's about damn time. The feature was noticed by Chrome tinkerer Francois Beaufort on the Chromium Code Review website, and was discussed by Chrome's development team just over a week ago now, and has already been baked into the Chromium code base. The page notes:
Android does not support password sync, enable password sync for clients which have migrated to using Keystore. Currently, passwords will start syncing only when sync-keystore-encryption flag is specified on the command line.
