A new Google tool can check if a password is safe enough
Feb 8, 2019
Password Checkup is a new free extension offered by Google Chrome, and it keeps track of website logins of its user to detect if the login information has been exposed. The extension sends a 'change password' warning to the user when someone logs in with a username and password that was compromised, and automatically resets the password for Google sites and services. The extension was designed by cryptography experts, and it encrypts the information, so not even Google will be able to see it.
