New features in Chrome 88 will make your passwords more secure

Chrome 88 was released yesterday, and with it, Google announced a number of new security features. In addition to checking saved passwords to see if any of them have been compromised, Chrome will now also alert you when the password is too weak to be secure. And if you need to change any saved password, there is a setting that makes it easier.

Chrome will notify you when a password is considered “weak” or easy to guess, probably because it’s too short or because you used a familiar word like name or place as your password. In any case, these “weak” passwords get their own section in the Passwords section of Chrome’s settings, asking you to change them.

In that sense, Google has added a new feature that makes it easier to change saved passwords, using the “edit password” dialog, which is faster and easier to find in the menu (3 items next to each item).

These features will appear “in the coming weeks” in Chrome 88. More features are also planned, such as support for biometric authentication for auto-filling passwords, which will soon come in Chrome for Android.

Users of computers running Windows, Mac and Linux can upgrade to Chrome 88 by going to Settings -> Help -> About Google Chrome. The browser will then automatically check for a new update and install it when available.
