Google Chrome v88 can automatically check weak passwords
Google Chrome has launched the Chrome v88 version yesterday. In this new stable version, Google also brings users new security features to improve the security of account passwords.
We know that Google Chrome has previously supported a password leak warning, that is, Google checks whether the user’s password has been leaked by comparing encrypted data.
If it is leaked, Google Chrome will automatically pop up a warning to remind the user to change the password. This new security feature is an improvement to the password check function.
The new security function in Chrome v88 allows users to manually check all saved account passwords. If a weak password is detected or has been leaked, you can click to update.
Go to the Google Chrome settings page and then open the password management page. Here you will see the option to check passwords. Click this button to perform checks in batches.
After the check is complete, Google Chrome will prompt you which accounts use weak passwords or leaked passwords, and will also provide a jump link to change the password.
Google Chrome cannot directly help you change the passwords of other websites, so clicking the jump link actually jumps to the corresponding website to change the password.
When the user tries to modify the password, Google Chrome will pop up a randomly generated high-strength password. If the user chooses this high-strength password, it will also be synchronized.
After such a set of procedures, the user’s weak or leaked password will be replaced with a strong password, which is automatically replaced by Google Chrome without remembering.
