Chrome 88 makes it easy to manage and change passwords


Google has released another Chrome update for Windows, Mac, and Linux, adding personal security features that should keep users a little more secure online. If you are using Chrome’s built-in password manager, which is not our recommendation, but that’s better than using the same password everywhere – now you’ll have a few more options. You can check if you have weak passwords, for example, by selecting your profile picture in the browser, followed by the wrench icon. (You can also type chrome: // settings / passwords in your address bar.) Select “Check Passwords” and you will see a breakdown of the accounts that need to be updated.

In addition, Google offers users a single place to update all of their Chrome-managed passwords. “You might want to update multiple usernames and passwords easily, in one convenient place,” the company explained in a blog post. “That’s why starting with Chrome 88, you can manage all of your passwords even faster and easier in Chrome settings.” The feature is expected to be available on desktop and iOS now, ahead of Android’s rollout in the near future.
