However, to help you solve this issue, Google will notify you if the passwords saved in their Chrome browser has been compromised and will provide a way to fix it.

To ensure that a user’s passwords are not shared directly with Google themselves, Google will be using a special secured form of encryption before being sent to Google.

Moreover, if your account has been compromised you would want to change your password. Google is making this process easier too by providing users a direct link to the relevant form to change the password for that particular account. Along with this, Safety Check is also rolling out to Google Chrome for Android and iOS, which will check for compromised passwords, if safe-browsing is enabled and ensure that Chrome is updated to the latest version.

For Chrome on iOS, Google is also adding biometric password authentication for auto-filling passwords, which is a feature that already exist in Chrome for Android. The feature is simple, when you want to fill in a password, you will need to authenticate it via FaceID biometrics.

These changes will be rolling out today to all Google Chrome users on both iOS and Android.
