Auto-update passwords for Google Assistant



Google’s virtual assistant program Assistant may now alert users when they need to update their password and even assist them.

According to Android Police, Google said last year that it would release a feature in Chrome for Android that would enable users to replace stolen passwords quickly.

Although the firm said that the new experience would roll out gradually, it is only now that a small number of consumers have begun to get it on their devices.

According to the article, Chrome may also notify users if their saved credentials are dangerous or have been reused due to a data breach.

Google stated in 2021 that it would roll out the option for users to automatically change hacked passwords, but most individuals still had to execute the password-changing step manually.

After this update will notify the user as soon as they enter into a site with a compromised password. According to Android Police’s Max Weinbach, the dialogue box will contain a large Assistant-branded “Change automatically” button.

After tapping, a confirmation page will appear, which users must accept. Will then direct users to the impacted website to create a new account password. Users may either enter their password or have the built-in password management recommend one.

According to the study, Assistants can manage the whole procedure for users from start to finish, but they can also take control at any point.
