Google Assistant in Chrome can now reportedly change your stolen passwords automatically. This feature was originally announced by the search giant during Google I/O 2021. At that time, Google had announced that this feature would gradually be released for Chrome on Android in the USA. Screenshots of this new security feature have reportedly surfaced on Twitter. Google has said that this feature leverages its “Duplex on the Web” technology, which was originally used to automate tedious tasks like booking movie tickets online.
According to the pictures tweeted by tipster Max Weinbach (@MaxWinebach) Google Assistant on Chrome would display a prompt asking for permission to change your password automatically. This prompt appears when it is determined that the password you are currently using has been leaked through a data breach. You will then be asked for confirmation so that the wizard can change your password. You will then be automatically redirected to the affected website, where you can manually enter a new password or use the password suggested by Chrome’s password manager. This feature is said to be compatible with only a few websites at the moment.
As previously mentioned, Google announced this feature during the 2021 Google I/O event. The duplex technology allows you to change the password with a single tap. The company also mentioned that you can go through the entire process manually or jump in at any point in the process.
Recently, Google also released web store badges for Chrome. This step was taken to help you identify and install Chrome extensions from safe sources. Extensions in the Chrome Web Store now show a Featured badge or an Established Publisher badge. It should be noted that these badges cannot be purchased from the developers. They can only get it after making a request and verifying it.
