Password managers are becoming more and more popular as we become more aware of network security. Not surprisingly, the services themselves are also being improved. Google Password Manager just received an update as well, and it’s worth taking a closer look at the new features.
You hear about secure passwords everywhere, and it’s safe to say that most of us know the theory. A strong password is one that is made up of many different characters, and is unique and complex enough that it is difficult, if not impossible, to guess without using illegal tools. However, the truth does not always coincide with it, because most often we go the easy way and the password we generate is weak, but easy to remember (that’s how some people explain it to themselves). Therefore, in such situations (and not only in such situations), password managers are a great option, which will not only provide us with a safe string of characters, but will also remember them for us.
There are many such programs, one of them is Google Password Manager. It helps generate, remember and automatically fill in passwords when logging in to a smartphone or computer, in apps or in a browser, on both Android and iOS. The problem is that so far it lacks many useful features. Fortunately, Google decided to change this and improve its functionality with the new update.
Most importantly, its consistency was improved, as it looked and worked a little differently depending on what we were using it on. It will now look the same in the browser or on Android, which will make it much easier to use. Additionally, for Android users, Google Password Manager will now scan your saved passwords and alert you if it finds weak or reused credentials. We will also get an easy automatic update capability.

The update will also ensure that Google’s warnings about broken passwords appear on all Chrome platforms, including Android, Chrome OS, iOS, Windows, macOS, and Linux. You will also be able to manually add app passwords on all of these platforms.

Google assures that everything that its manager offers is created in such a way as not to disturb the user, and at the same time to offer the highest level of protection. We can save passwords when logging in or fill them in only when needed. Thanks to the changes introduced, using Google Password Manager will certainly be more convenient, and the service itself will eventually become competitive.
