Chrome warns users if password has been stolen

A new feature that Google is adding to its Chrome browser will alert users if their username and password has been stolen. ’When you type your credentials into a website, Chrome will now warn you if your username and password have been compromised in a data breach on some site or app’, said the tech platform in a blog post.

Firefox does this as well.

This is terrible advice. It's centralized security, which means it's a MUCH higher value target....

Dont use Chrome. Use Brave instead.

Stop using google products. It is all just software tracking you, building a detailed physiological profile of you; In order to control you, persuade you, nudge you, push you, to do what others are paying Google to manipulate you into doing. This is way beyond marketing, this is conditioning, brainwashing all based on ephemeral experiences and nudge technology. The nag factor on steroids.

So in other words, trust Lord Google to send your login info all over the net, "for your own protection". Stop trusting Google!

Most people should use something like BitWarden or LastPass. But never let your browser do password security for you. It's one of the biggest targets for exploits.

Don't use Chrome! I have been completely Google-free for over 1 year now! All thanks to an awesome firewall.
