Google Now will warn you that you need to change your compromised password

Last year, Google announced it would introduce a feature in Chrome for Android that would allow Google Assistant to help users change stolen passwords with a few taps. The company said that this function will be gradually introduced, but it seems that the plan has only just been realized.

Judging by the screenshots it is on Twitter posted by Max Weinbach of Android Police, a password change will be requested from you as soon as you log in to the site with a compromised password. A window will appear warning that the password you just used has been compromised and that Google Assistant may change your password automatically. Below the warning is the “Change automatically” button with a recognizable assistant logo. When you tap it, you will be taken to the affected website to set a new account password. You will need to give your consent for Google Assistant to help you change your password. Here you can enter your own key or allow the built-in password manager to suggest a new password. The assistant can lead the whole process for you from start to finish, but you also have the option to download the password change process at any stage.

However, this feature does not work on all sites. Google has yet to publish requests for websites to support automatic password changes, so the list of sites that are now relatively small will gradually grow.

As before, you will be able to initiate a password change by going to Chrome settings and then to the Passwords option, where you will also see the “Change Password” assistant button for compromised passwords.
