Memorizing passwords is hard. That’s why many of us use the same password across multiple sites. But this practice poses a huge risk, since it only takes one password breach to expose your account data from many different sites.
Not only that: changing passwords is itself a tedious task. You have to navigate to the site, sign in, find the account settings, open the password page — and then save it. Rinse and repeat on all your favorite sites, and that’s a lot of work.
The good news is that Chrome comes with a strong password manager built-in. It’s been checking the safety of your passwords for a while now. And starting today, whenever Chrome detects a breach, it can also fix any compromised passwords quickly, and safely.
