A context menu will appear, with a number of options, one of which is “Settings”. It is located towards the bottom, as shown below.

In the “Autofill” section, you will see the “Passwords” menu, which is on the first line.
That’s it, we are now in the ‘Passwords’ menu. At the top there are a number of options related to passwords. You can, for example, prevent Google from automatically logging you in, and even prevent it from asking you if you want to save a specific password. By default, Google will offer to save new passwords that you enter while browsing. Towards the bottom of the screen, you will see the “Saved passwords” section. This is where all your passwords are stored. You can tap the three dots next to them to get more options.
Once you have done this, a context menu will appear, allowing you to copy, modify and delete this specific password.
