How to Undo Never Save Password for This Site Click in Google Chrome



If you’re a Google Chrome user and you’ve ever hit “Never for this site” by accident (or have girlfriend who does so consistently), it’s a little tricky finding out how to edit these “Save Password” exceptions. It’s pretty clear for Windows’ Chrome:

A little snooping reveals that Chrome keeps its login information in a SQLite database file:

C:\Users\(User Name)\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Login Data

To remove an entry from the exception list, do the following:

  1. Shut down Chrome
  2. Probably a good idea to make a backup of the database file
  3. Open the database file in a SQLite database browser; I use SQLite Database Browser
  4. Select the “Browse Data” tab
  5. Sites for which “Never for this Site” has been selected will have the value 1 for the column blacklisted_by_user. Double-click the desired cell, change the value to 0, and click “Apply Changes”
  6. Save and close the database file
  7. Restart Chrome
