‘Password Checkup’ Google Tool announces when passwords are leaked

The feature will check the strength of saved passwords and alert users when they’re compromised in a breach. Google is building a “password checkup” tool into its account controls to improve password habits by telling people if their passwords are weak and when they have been compromised. This marks an expansion of Google’s Password Checkup browser extension, which has accumulated more than 1 million downloads and warned half of users to a compromised password since it was launched earlier this year. Password Checkup is available for the Google Web dashboard and Android devices; later this year, it will be built into the Chrome browser.
