Google Chrome has upped its cybersecurity after launching an excellent new tool to keep passwords preserved. It has added an alert system to its smartphone app that will tell you if criminals/ hackers have hacked your accounts.
Chrome running on any smartphone can now check whether your passwords have been hacked.
The feature previously worked on personal computers but now works on Apple iPhones and devices powered by Google’s Android. The feature sends usernames and passwords to Google servers to check if they have been compromised in any data breaches.
Google itself can’t see your usernames or passwords but can only check if they match ones that have been jeopardised. Apple engineers created a new feature designed to make it easier for people to change passwords makes it possible for software like browsers or password managers to find a website’s address for changing passwords.
Google’s Abdel Karim Mardini wrote in a blog post that things are changing for the better – and he informed users what needs to happen to up security on devices.
