Google has taken another step toward protecting users from fishing attempts by releasing a new Google Chrome extension ‘Password Alert‘. The extension protects users from being Gmail account overused with other non-google websites. As soon as it detects that the password has been exposed to any non-google website/service, it prompts to reset password immediately.
Whenever someone is victimized by phishing attacks, he/she does not know (many times) that they have shared their information with somebody else besides Google. That is where the extension ‘Password Alert’ is a very useful security extension. It’ll inform the user as soon as user enters credential information on the non-google page.
How To Use ‘Password Alert’?
Using ‘Password Alert’ is very easy. It’s a Chrome extension that you can install and use.
- Install Password Alert from Chrome Store
- Sign Into your Google account
- It’s all done! Now Password Alert is monitoring where you are entering your account detail.
