Manage password change alerts

You may get an alert from Chrome if you use a password and username combination that has been compromised in a data leak on a third party website or app. Compromised password and username combinations are unsafe because they’ve been published online.

We recommend that you change any compromised passwords as soon as you can. You can check your saved passwords and find sites that use the compromised password.

Chrome makes sure that your passwords and username are protected so they can’t be read by Google.

To change your compromised password when you get an alert:
