Moreover, it is limited to the users who have signed in the Chrome browser. This is an expansion of the Password Checkup, and you'll now be warned as you browse the web. To simplify it, the Chrome Password Checkup tool will warn users when they enter their credentials have been entered on a site or app that has a know data breach. Soon, when you type your Google account password into a suspected phishing site, we'll add additional protections to ensure your account isn't compromised. It keeps these as part of its Safe Browsing initiative. The features like Password Protection, Real-Time Phishing Protection and some new gestures are part and parcel of the latest iteration. It will be gradually rolled out and can be controlled in the Settings tab under Sync and Google Services.

What is gained by removing it other than a bit more space in the browser's address bar?

If you're sharing your laptop, computer, or tablet with other people and you each have your own Chrome profile, it can sometimes get confusing as to which one is now up on the browser.


Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai has announced a major feature in the Google Chrome browser. Now, instead of a Chrome extension, Password Checkup is being integrated into the desktop and mobile versions of Chrome 79.

This isn't necessarily a new technology, and Google itself has previously offered such capabilities as part of the Password Checkup extension.

Previously, Google had used a database that was updated every 30 minutes, but attackers change their domains so quickly, the company has chose to switch to a real-time model that it believes will stop 30% more phishing attacks. Chrome removes the encryption it applied to your login credentials using your own key, leaving only Google's encryption in place. Google uses that snippet of your hashed username to select the part of its database including the same snippet in the index. You then get a copy of your passwords encrypted with two keys-one is your usual private key, and the other is the same key used for Google's bad credentials list. It will alert you that your credentials have been pwned at the point in time when you're most likely to do something about it - when you're trying to log into the site. Google figures that since it has a big (encrypted) database of all your passwords, it might as well compare them against a 4-billion-strong public list of compromised usernames and passwords that have been exposed in innumerable security breaches over the years. They include password managers such as Dashlane and 1Password, which monitor logins and inform people when their credentials have been compromised.
