Chrome on ios and android will let you know if a password is compromised



Google Chrome is adding up a plus of security on iOS and Android to protect users' saved passwords.

In this new update of the Chrome app, we will find many functions dedicated to security, which we have long since available in the web version.

For example, as in the desktop version, Chrome will alert users when a password has been compromised.

To check if you have compromised passwords, Chrome sends a copy of your usernames and passwords to Google using a special form of encryption. This allows Google to check them with lists of credentials that are known to be compromised

When Google's browser detects that a password was compromised it launches an alert to the user. And so that the user does not waste time looking for the option that allows changing the password, Chrome will also show you the form. So you can take appropriate action before it becomes a headache.

On the other hand, Chrome on Android is also implementing safe browsing features. A dynamic that protects users of dangerous websites (phishing, malware, etc.), since the browser sends information to Google Safe Browsing.

And on iOS, users will now have the option of biometric authentication for password autocomplete. This way, they can use, for example, Face ID or Touch ID or opt for phone unlock code.

These new features correspond to Google Chrome 86 that was released today on different platforms. So you'll have to wait for the Chrome app to update on your mobile to see all these features.
