Google Chrome will soon become a more secure browser for Android and iOS. Receive an update that will warn you if your passwords have been compromised and how you can fix the situation.
Chrome will be able to search for compromised passwords by sending a copy of them to Google with a special form of encryption, so that Google can’t access your password or username.
How does the new Google service work?
You are already accustomed to the fact that if Google notices suspicious activities, it will instantly notify you by email of the registration of these activities. Now, when a stolen password is notified, the browser will send you to a password change form for any service from which the password came.
It will do this immediately after you receive from Google Chrome warning that your password has been stolen, without having to go through any additional steps.
In addition, Safety Check is an update for Chrome Mobile, which will also tell you if your secure browsing options are active and if you are using the latest version of Google security protections on Chrome. IOS users will also be able to use passwords saved in Chrome for other apps. They will receive a fingerprint authentication request before Chrome passwords can be used anywhere else.
Another update is planned for Android devices to improve secure browsing to protect you from phishing, malware and dangerous websites. However, it comes at a cost, as you’ll have to share your data in real time with Google, which many probably won’t be too happy about.
However, the cost may outweigh the benefits, as Google said that users who have this option enabled on their desktop have seen a 20% drop in phishing and malware attacks.
