Google has announced a number of updates to its password management service in an effort to unify the user experience across devices.
According to Ali Sarraf, product manager for Google Chrome, the changes are centered on a “simplified and unified management experience that’s the same in Chrome and Android settings.” Android’s built-in Password Checkup function is also getting an upgrade. Along with looking for compromised credentials, it may also point out weak and frequently used passwords, similar to Apple iOS. Google is extending the compromised password warnings to all operating system users of Chrome.
Additionally, Google is introducing a new “Touch-to-Login” feature for Chrome for Android, which enables users to sign in to websites with a single tap after inputting their credentials with autofill.
