Google Password Manager New Features
Recently, Google published a formal blog post to reveal the updated capabilities of Google Password Manager. The business acknowledged that the enhancements, which make Google’s password management service simpler to use and unified across all platforms, are presently rolling out to all users.
To begin with, Google has streamlined and harmonised the Chrome on the web and Android password management experience. The user interfaces for Google’s Password Manager on Android and the web were previously significantly dissimilar. Users will now have access to Chrome’s Password Manager on both PCs and Android devices, thanks to the new update.
We’ll combine together multiple passwords for websites and apps that have a lot in common. Additionally, Android users may now add a shortcut to Password Manager to their home screen to easily access their saved passwords.
The capability to manually add passwords to Google Password Manager without relying on Chrome is another noteworthy improvement. The business has included a new Touch-to-Login option to enable customers to sign into apps and services with a single touch, expanding its Touch-to-Fill option, which it first offered on Android back in 2020.
In addition to this, Google has included a new Password Checkup tool that enables users to periodically bulk-check their saved passwords to see if they have been involved in a data breach. If that happens, Password Manager will provide you the option to secure your account(s) by changing the compromised passwords. All Chrome users on Android, Chrome OS, iOS, Windows, macOS, and Linux will receive compromised password warnings.
Recently, the Chrome team at Google published a little video showcasing Password Manager’s updated functionality. You can view it by clicking on the attachment below. Please share your opinions about it in the comments section.
