I have been an avid user of Google's password saver feature on Android.
Google promises that they are hard at work trying to get rid of passwords as our primary form of account protection, and until they succeed we're stuck with them.
Google has updated its password manager to tell users if their password has been compromised, Wired reported. The tool in question is essentially a check to determine whether passwords have been found in any breaches of a site or service. It checks the security and strength of your saved passwords.
But since the start of the year, and through the launch of the Password Checkup Chrome extension, Google also began pushing for the use of unique passwords, and eradication of password reuse. At the same time, the password manager can evaluate which passwords and logins are re-used or weak and provide additional recommendations on password changes. But Risher added we kind of suck at this categorisation - our words, not his - and end up reusing passwords when we shouldn't. That's one of the reasons people have developed bad habits, like using the same password across multiple services, which makes all of them as vulnerable as the weakest link.

The Harris survey testifies to the costs of these mistakes: In it, 40% of Americans said their data had been compromised online, 47% of them said they'd had lost money, and 12% had seen more than $500 vanish.
Google is not the only browser maker that is improving password management and security capabilities. A blog post from February explains how the company hashes and encrypts passwords to allow them to be checked anonymously and safely-with the final go/no-go verdict processed locally on your device.
Google is rolling out its handy Password Checkup tool to a wider audience because let's be honest: How good is your password protocol? Google says the extension has been downloaded more than one million times, with almost half of those users receiving a warning that their password was compromised. "If any of these are yours, attackers could have these passwords and access your information".
