New Chrome extension will let you know if your password is unsafe

On Safer Internet Day, Google gives you three tips to keep your device and data safe

Password Reuse Remains a Barrier To Safer Internet Use

Any time your username and password are detected among compromised credentials, Google's extension triggers an automatic warning, and suggests a password change.

Your passwords are never seen by Google (the company only stores a hashed, partial code for unsafe passwords in your Chrome browser), and Google claims the extension "never reports any identifying information about your accounts, passwords, or device". If not, you'll get a message that one ore more of your passwords are no longer safe due to a data breach, and you'll be prompted to change them.

The search giant added that it has built the Password Checkup with privacy concerns of sharing your account details with anyone, including Google, in mind. Keeping track of which data breaches affect you is hard, and it's why password managers started getting popular and offering to automatically update passwords for you on a regular basis.

While Google already resets passwords of user accounts who might have been affected by third-party breaches as part of an effort to limit the potential security impact on its users' accounts, this feature is limited only to Google accounts.

Ever since digital big leaguers like Facebook - and even its own Google+ - were hobbled by data privacy gaffes that exposed the personal data of its users, Google has been on a mission to make sure it covers his rear end the best it can.

"We want to help you stay safe not just on Google, but elsewhere on the web as well". Google says that "when apps and sites have implemented it, we're able to send information about security events - like an account hijacking, for instance - to them so they can protect you, too". The extension takes the username and password entered in the login form and checks them against a database of over four billion credentials that Google engineers have collected from public breaches in the past few years.
