In recent years, it has become common for website services to be hacked and millions of passwords exposed. Google Chrome is taking a more standard approach to help users know if their passwords have been compromised on the Internet. If you’ve been checked by Google that your password has been exposed, just click a button and your browser will jump to the correct URL to help you easily change your password.
It is reported that this feature uses a “well-known” solution, because most websites have a standard “change password” page. And Chrome went one step further — helping users jump!
WordPress, for example, has a password modification URL of https://wordpress.com/.well-known/change-password.
In addition, Twitter, a well-known social media platform, has a password change website at http://twitter.com/.well-known/change-password.
With integrated password disclosure checks and a jump modification feature, Chrome eliminates many of the hassles of intermediate processes. If some websites don’t support this feature, Google will direct you to its home page.
Google is scheduled to introduce this feature in version 86 of Chrome, released in October 2020, when interested friends can try to turn the tag on or off manually.
It is also used as a standard feature in Apple Safari and will soon be available in other Chromium kernel-based armor browsers.
