Google is improving the security features of Chrome for mobile. The update will alert the user of any of the passwords that have been compromised. It will be rolled out to Chrome application for both iOS and Android. After alerting the user, it will redirect and ask you to change the password immediately.
Chrome does it by sending a copy of the passwords to Google in a special form of encryption so that even Google cannot read your username and password. In addition, the update will let you know if Safe Browsing is enabled and manually check for compromised passwords. It will also alert you if Chrome for Mobile you are using does not have the latest security protections.
On iOS, you will get a biometric authentication prompt before Chrome fills in any password. On the other hand in Android, Chrome will also get an Enhanced Safe Browsing which proactively protects you from phishing, malware, or other insecure sites by sharing real-time data with Google’s Safe Browsing service. According to the company, this service has saved 20% of its users from entering passwords into phishing websites.
