Last week Google released a new password protection feature on its Internet browser Chrome. With the introduction of this feature, the browser version for mobile platforms will now compare your saved login credentials with a list of login details that have been previously compromised.

If a match is found, it will also alert you. Also, for your convenience, the browser will also take you to the place where you will be able to change your credentials. This feature has been released for both Android and iOS smartphones as part of the Chrome 86 update. It is named the Safety Check.

Chrome will send a copy of your user names and passwords to Google to detect the compromised passwords. According to the company’s claim, it will be sent in a special form of encryption. After this, Google will compare them with the list of credentials that have been compromised.

Readers note that Google cannot derive your username or password from this encrypted copy and this feature will work on the same specific passwords, which will give you the freedom to remember Chrome.

To use the new password protection feature, you need to follow these steps:

  • Open Google Chrome.
  • Go to Settings
  • Tap on passwords.
  • Then tap on Check Passwords.
