Chrome Password Checkup extension


#1

This is an interesting blog post from Google. I like the idea, but I don’t understand their implementation enough to trust it yet. This seems like a similar concept to Have I Been Pwned, but with username password combined. Can anyone speak to the safety/security of this implementation? It would be nice to have a solution like this for checking passwords in real time.

It’s interesting and Google does have a history of doing things in a secure way. It does serve their interests as well because that can’t properly monetize your existence if you are not you. :slight_smile:

Keyword monetize and that is reason for skepticism. Google does nothing for benevolent reasons.
