Google has introduced a new Google Chrome extension that will help protect your online accounts from hackers. This Google Chrome tool called Password Checkup was introduced on Tuesday by Google and it warns the user when its username and password have been stolen in any type of hacking.
At the same time this tool also reminds people to change the password of online accounts every few months later. It is believed that changing the password for a long time may also threaten your online accounts because the details of 2 billion 20 million accounts were leaked recently, some of which were 2008.
According to Google, the data for this tool has also been received from 4 billion users name and passwords. This database is being used by the Company to protect Google users from the last 5 years and more than 110 million accounts have been saved in this way. Without Google’s security measures, the danger of accounts hacking increases 10 times.
At present, 62% of internet browsing users use Google Chrome browser.
Google is not a single company that is taking such measures; the Facebook Security Team monitors public hacking leaks. Well, users keep the password of all their accounts different to protect their accounts; it is difficult for hackers to capture them. Google says that its new tool does not save your password and users can use it without fear.
