Chrome “Automated Password Change” Fixes Breached Passwords

Share post:

In an effort to help users change passwords that have been compromised in data breaches, Google recently introduced a new feature called “Automated Password Change,” which allows users to change passwords automatically.

With the new feature, whenever there’s a check for stolen passwords on supported app sites, Google Assistant displays a “Change Password” button that will instruct Chrome to go through the entire process of changing passwords on its own.

There will also be an option for users to go through the entire experience manually during the login process.
