Google has started rolling out a new feature for Android users, allowing them to share passwords for family accounts through the Password Manager.

The company stated earlier this year that it intends to promote family safety and balance with technology by introducing this feature. It allows users to easily share passwords with their family members through Google Password Manager.

As reported Android AuthorityGoogle has confirmed the introduction of password sharing in Google Password Manager via a support page as part of the May 2024 Google Play Services Update (v24.20).

How password sharing works

It's important to note that password sharing is limited to family accounts. Users cannot share passwords with people outside of their family group, even if they have a Google Account. Passwords for specific websites or services can be shared directly from the Password Manager.

Google previously highlighted several scenarios where this feature could be useful, such as managing daycares or sharing schoolwork between children and parents. Plus, it can facilitate shared access to streaming services, insurance credentials, VPNs, and more.


The feature is currently only available on Android and not yet on Chrome for desktop. However, it is expected to be on Chrome soon.

The announcement on Google's System Updates support page mentioned:

With this new feature, you can now securely share your passwords with your family group in Google Password Manager. When you share a password, your family members will receive a copy of it in their Google Password Manager, ready to use.
