Google has released a new Chrome extension that checks if your various website credentials have been hacked.

The extension is called 'Password Checkup'. Whenever you sign in to a website, it will detect if you've entered a username and password that has appeared in a known data breach and prompt you to reset it.

Password Checkup was built with privacy in mind. It never reports any identifying information about your accounts, passwords, or device. We do report anonymous information about the number of lookups that surface an unsafe credential, whether an alert leads to a password change, and the domain involved for improving site coverage. You can learn more about how Password Checkup works at https://support.google.com/accounts?p=password-checkup.

Google notes that this is the first version of Password Checkup and that the extension will be refined in the coming months. You can install it from the link below!
