After the desktop, mobile Chrome can now also check if your password has been compromised. Chrome, which works on iPhones and Android phones, got a “password check” on Tuesday. The feature is to send the username and password to Google’s servers to check if the username and password have been compromised. But Google doesn’t see your account name or password, just check to see if they match the information that has been leaked.
Google’s “password check” feature has landed on the mobile side with the release of Chrome 86 Mobile on Tuesday. Password checking has previously emerged as an extension, which Google has embedded in its browser after constant change optimization. Users can see if the password code in their Google account may have been compromised, not secure enough, or used in multiple accounts. Users can then change any unsecured passwords to improve the security of their account.
