A recent announcement on the official Google blog revealed that the company has upgraded the functionalities of its Chrome browser. The Chrome password manager built-in tool which stores users’ login credentials for different sites has been set to detect security issues.

Whenever Chrome detects a password that may have been compromised it will offer you a quick one-click fix. The browser will display a “Change password” button from Assistant that could go to the related site and perform the whole process of changing your password. The feature is available for supported sites only. Still, it enables people to improve the security of other sites too.

The Chrome strong built-in password manager can help you keep unwelcome visitors from breaking into your accounts. So the next large-scale data leak may not affect your online security if you pay attention to the pop-up warning generated by the Chrome Password Manager.

Here is how the company describes its new security upgrade:

Going forward, Chrome will help you change your passwords with a single tap. On supported sites, whenever you check your passwords and Chrome finds a password that may have been compromised, you will see a “Change password” button from Assistant.

The feature is currently available on Chrome for Android. It could be used by all users in the U.S. who have opted to sync their passwords. At this point, a small number of apps and websites are supported. But it’s expected that the password manager will be available on more sites and in more countries anytime soon.
