Google introduces password checking into Chrome settings

With Google Chrome, you can check all passwords saved in Your Password Manager for passwords in your Google account, which are available from password.google.com. Google now also wants to be able to scan for security issues in passwords from Chrome’s Settings.

To protect your account from data breaches, Google first introduced the Password Check Chrome extension, and later integrated the technology into chrome password manager called Password Breach Detection, allowing users to check their passwords to see if they were compromised by a data breach. Chrome also detects and warns you if the username and password you enter into a website has been obtained by hackers because of data breaches on certain websites or applications.

To get started, make sure you sign in to Chrome with your Google account and visit passwords.google.com, click check password twice, and then enter your password when prompted, and if any problems are detected, the scan results will be displayed. Now, if the Bulk Password Check flag is enabled in the chrome 82 canary version, your password can also be analyzed on the chrome/sets/passwords page. When this flag is enabled, the Bulk Password Check ingress for signed-in users is enabled.

If you restart Chrome and visit the Chrome s/s/password page, you’ll notice a new “Check password” section with a message: “Protect your password from data breaches and other security issues,” and click it will display the “Check password” option.
