Google ups mobile security on its Chrome Application

Alphabet Inc’s business subsidiary Google has announced that it is going to offer its mobile version of Chrome Application with utmost security as it has made password management on it much better.

As Chrome 86 has gone live on Android and iOS mobile versions, the internet juggernaut has made password management excellently stronger by enabling safe browsing and improving the ability of password filling on both the operating systems.

It’s been done through a mobile program that recognizes when a password is getting compromised and will immediately warn the users to change their passwords. Google says that the security program will be active on both the iOS and Android versions and will always run in the background scanning for compromised passwords and that too without consuming much of the users’ mobile data.

Now to those using Chrome on Android mobile versions, here’s some good news. Google will offer an enhanced safe browsing mode where the browsing tool will be proactively tracking for malware and phishing attempts in visited web portals and in downloads. And as soon as any suspicious activity takes place, the chrome browser will display a security pop up to re-assess the cyber threat.

Note 1- All Apple iOS users can authenticate Chrome auto-filled passwords using Face ID, Touch IDs, or their phone pins to authenticate the form filling activity.

Note 2- As per the stats released by StatCounter and NetMarketShare, Chrome occupies a market share of 68% in the worldwide browser market share, followed by Safari & Firefox, along with Microsoft Edge in third position.
