Last year, Google started teasing about the password alerts for Chrome and after that, the feature was finally rolled out for PCs in December with Chrome 79. Now, Google has started rolling out the much-needed feature to Android and iOS with the latest Chrome 86 update.

In the latest update with the Chrome 86 version browser will warn you if one of the saved passwords gets compromised. To check compromised passwords, Google will securely send a copy of your usernames and passwords to its servers. Also, this process will be verified and trustworthy as it is Google the name is enough for your security.

On iOS, Chrome is adding an additional layer of security before you autofill passwords. The browser will ask you to authenticate using Face ID, Touch ID, or passcode before filling the credentials. Chrome on iOS will also autofill saved credentials to other apps or browsers.

With this feature, Chrome will warn when HTTPS pages have non-secure content, say when you’re filling an unencrypted form present in an HTTPS page. The browser will also block or warn when secure pages initiate insecure downloads.

Chrome 86 is now rolling out on desktop, Android, and iOS. You can install the update on the mobile versions from Google Play Store and App Store respectively.
