Chrome’s Password Safety Tool Will Now Run in the Background Automatically

Chrome’s password safety tool will now run in the background automatically. This feature has been around in the Chrome platform for quite some time now, but the thing is that it has always worked differently. But with the introduction of this new update, things are about to change. Safety Check is now getting new features.

Chrome’s Password Safety Tool

Chrome’s Password Safety Tool

Google’s very own Safety Check feature for Chrome, which, as you should know, among many other things, checks the internet to see if any of your saved passwords on the platform have been compromised, will now “run automatically in the background” on desktop, the firm stated in a blog post on Thursday. The constant checks in question could simply mean that you are alerted about a password that is saved to the platform that you should change sooner than you would have before.

The Features of Chrome’s Safety Check

Safety Check in question also watches for bad extensions or site permissions that you need to take a look at, and you can easily and effectively act on Safety Check alerts from the three-dot menu of Chrome. And in addition to the new development, Google reveals that Safety Check can revoke the permissions of a site if you have not visited it in a while.

Other New Features Coming To Google Chrome

Google also reportedly announced an upcoming feature for the tab groups of Chrome, and also on desktop, Chrome will now allow you to save tab groups so that you can easily use those groups across devices, which in question might come in handy when you are moving between a PC at home as well as a laptop when traveling. The company reveals that this feature will roll out “over the next few weeks.”

Google Gemini Coming To Chrome

The tech firm also teased that it will be bringing features that are powered by Gemini, which is its new AI model, to Chrome “early next year.” That in question is not a surprise as CEO Sundar Pichai had already stated Gemini would make its way to Chrome. But the thing is that I’m curious to see what it really means in practice all the same.
