Manage Chrome safety and security

For a more secure browsing experience, you can use Chrome’s safety features, like Safety Check and HTTPS-First mode.

Compromised passwords

Compromised passwords were involved in data leaks on a third-party website or app. Change any compromised passwords when you can. To change your password from another site, follow the instructions in Chrome.

Safe Browsing

With Safe Browsing, you get alerts about malware, risky extensions, phishing or sites on Google’s list of potentially unsafe sites. Learn more about Safe Browsing protection in Chrome.

Automatic Chrome updates

To make sure you're protected by the latest security updates, when available, Chrome can automatically update to the newest browser version.

On-device encryption for passwords

Once on-device encryption is set up, you can use your Google password or the screen lock for compatible phones or tablets to unlock your password. This type of encryption means that only you have the key to unlock your passwords. Learn more about on-device encryption.

Tip: To relaunch Chrome after an update, follow the instructions on screen.
