Chrome now can find hacked passwords on Android and iPhones

Google also embraces an Apple idea to make changing your password easier.

Chrome running on your smartphone now can check whether your passwords have been hacked. The feature previously worked on personal computers, but now works on Apple iPhones and devices powered by Google’s Android, the company said Tuesday.

The feature sends usernames and passwords to Google servers to check if they’ve been compromised in known data breaches. Google itself can’t see your usernames or passwords, though, only check if they match ones that have been compromised.
