The password of the account will be changed automatically in case of a leak with the new feature that Google Assistant is getting.
A screenshot of the new feature has surfaced and how it will work.
The company’s tools do give a warning in case of password leak, but users have to change the password themselves.
Tipster gave information about the new feature
Tipster Max Weinbach has given information about this feature through a tweet.
The screengrab shared by him shows a dialog box that reads, “Chrome recently found the password you used to be in a data leak. Your Google Assistant may change the password automatically.”
Here you will find the option to change the password automatically or ‘cancel’ this prompt.
Worldwide 123456 is the most used password, while in India, most Internet users use the word ‘password’ as a password. In India, more than 17 lakh users are using it for their accounts.
Such a warning will also appear in Google Chrome
Android Police has said that Google Chrome users will also be shown a similar warning that the passwords used by them are not secure.
Users are warned in such situations when passwords stored on their behalf in the browser are exposed in a data leak.
However, till now users were asked to change the password by giving warnings and they could do so manually.
New update is an extension of existing feature
After the update, not only the saved passwords in Google Chrome, but also the password entered during login in any website will get a warning in case of leak.
This feature is built with Duplex on the web technology and Google Assistant has got the ability to change the passwords of the users themselves.
The new security feature added to Google Assistant is an extension of the breached-password-detector feature already available in Chrome.
