Chrome will now warn users when their passwords have been stolen
Google has detailed new features added in the latest version of popular Chrome browser. The most notable feature is that Chrome now warns users if their passwords have been stolen. This will help users in protecting themselves from identity theft and data loss.
Google will use the data leaked in different data breaches and will notify users if their information has been detected in a data breach. This warning will also include a link to check what passwords may have been compromised.
Not all people check security news to know about recent data breaches. So, most of the users never know that one of their web account details have been leaked by one of the services they are using. For example, my login credentials from LinkedIn and Zomato were leaked.
If you want, you can check if any of your web accounts have been compromised using the available services.
It is worth to note that Google launched a similar feature in the form of the Password Checkup extension for Chrome. Now the same has been added natives to Google Chrome.
Google Chrome will also now offer real-time phishing protection. Google has also improved the visual representation of the profile you are currently using, so you always clearly know what profile you are using.
