It is never a good idea to share your password with others, but sometimes this cannot be helped. For example, elderly members of your family might have a hard time remembering their passwords, so sometimes you or other family members might have to remember it for them.
This can be troublesome because in addition to remembering your own passwords, you will have to remember someone else’s passwords too, but the good news is that if you use Chrome, password sharing will become a lot easier.
After clicking the "Share" button, a dialog will show you the members of your family group and you will be able to share the password with any of those members, unfortunately this still doesn't work: pic.twitter.com/QBLqlaKDU1

According to a post on X by user @Leopeva64, they have discovered that the upcoming password sharing feature in Chrome will soon let you share passwords with users part of your “Google family” group. This is essentially a group of users that you trust to be put under the family group, like your parents, children, siblings, and other relatives if you prefer.
Presumably the idea is that because these people are considered to be “trusted” (at least by you), it would be “safer” to share passwords with them. The password sharing feature of Chrome was initially spotted back in June, also by @Leopeva64, but this post has revealed additional details about it. There’s still no word on when it will launch, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
