Google Released a New Feature in Chrome to Fix Your Hacked Password in 1-Click

The security researchers at Google have recently added a very new unique feature for Chrome, and this feature will help the users to change their previously compromised passwords just with one click.

Google has launched a very new version of the password manager for the Google Chrome browser, and this new version will eventually increase the security of user data, as Google has used Google’s Duplex technology in this new version.

While Google has assured that soon the rollout of this new feature will start slowly to Chrome users on Android in the U.S. and eventually it will follow the same for the other countries.

Fix Your Hacked Password

However, this feature is specifically launched for the privilege of users, that’s why Chrome will help its users to change their passwords with a single tap or just in one click.

In this new feature, when the users check their password, at that time, Chrome will automatically find out if the password has been compromised or not.

Well in this situation, you will get a button that is the “Change password” from the assistant. After clicking the button, Chrome will navigate you to the site, and it will also go through the whole process of changing to a new password procedure.

Moreover, in this changing password procedure, Chrome allows you to handle the whole experience, and you can also go through the change password process manually from the start, or any desired point during the procedure.

Duplex on the Web Technology

To give more power to this feature, Chrome is using the Duplex technology, which was initially introduced in 20019. The main motive for this Duplex feature is that Google assistant can easily help the users to complete the task that is present on the web.

However, these Duplex features help users in scrolling, clicking, and filling forms, and it also enables the users to focus on what’s more important for them. 

After this, Chrome has expanded its Duplex feature by enlarging all its abilities, just by letting the users to create a strong password for some specific sites and app.

Soon after the launch of a new feature, the developers have already started to use this password change feature in Chrome for Android, specifically those users who have allowed the password sync.

Not only this, but Google has also announced an update to its password manager, which includes a new tool that will help the user to import passwords from third-party managers as well.
