The service is currently available for the Google web dashboard and Android devices, but will also be added to the Chrome browser later this year.
In a blog post, Google said, " Until passwords become a thing of the past (trust us, we’re working on it), there’s a simple and secure solution: use a password manager, like the one built into your Google Account and Google Chrome."
With a single click, the Password Checkup tells a user if:
- Passwords have been compromised in a third-party breach. Google said it has found more than 4 billion usernames and passwords that have been exposed due to third-party breaches.
- Passwords are being reused across different sites.
- Passwords should be strengthened. Weak passwords can be easily guessed by attackers, putting your personal information at risk.
