At the end of last year, Chrome released an important feature which allows you to know if someone has stolen your passwords, but until now it was only available in the desktop version of the browser.

The checking for broken passwords is preparing to arrive on Android, and we can test it from today thanks to the latest version of Chrome Canary.

Check passwords in Chrome for Android

Check Passwords Chrome Android

The development and unstable version of Chrome Canary 86 allows us to activate through its experimental functions. To do this, we just have to follow these steps:

  1. In the address bar access Chrome: // flags
  2. Active (Enabled) the experimental function Bulk Password Check (# passwod-check)
  3. Tap on Relaunch to restart the browser.

Once the bulk password verification feature Chrome for Android will warn us if there is any security bankruptcy in which some of the passwords have been leaked for us to change.

In Chrome> Settings> Passwords we will find the new option Check passwords. There it will check all our passwords, informing us how many and which passwords have been compromised. In the list we will see in which site, username and password there is a data security breach along with a direct access to change Password.
