Google Chrome taught to warn users about cracking their passwords
As it became known, Google has updated its Chrome browser for mobile devices, teaching it to warn users about cracking their passwords. The application will offer to change the attacked data.
The moment a Google Chrome user receives a password cracking notification, the browser itself will switch it to the вЂњchange passwordвЂќ form in the service in which it was cracked, according to the official Google blog. In order to be able to check passwords for their knowledge to unauthorized persons, the company sends a copy of them to its own servers. The search engine makes a special emphasis on the fact that this process uses a special form of encryption, which allows the company to receive only anonymized information, and also not have access to the вЂњUsername / PasswordвЂќ link.
Google also said that Android smartphone owners will soon have access to improved safe search functionality. With its help, the company intends to protect users from phishing and other attempts to get to their personal data.
