Get alerts to change your passwords

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 follow the instructions in Chrome to change your password on the site where you’ve used that password, and check your saved passwords for any other site the password may be saved on. 

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

Important: You must be signed in to Chrome to get these notifications.

To start or stop notifications:

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More More and then Settings.
  3. Under "Privacy and security," click Security.
  4. Tap Standard protection.
  5. Turn 'Warn you if passwords are exposed in a data breach" on or off.
Tip: This feature is only available if the "Safe Browsing" option is activated.

How Chrome saves and syncs passwords

How Chrome saves your passwords depends on whether you want to store and use them across devices. When you're signed in to Chrome, you can save your passwords to your Google Account. Passwords can then be used on Chrome across your devices, and across some apps on your Android devices.

Otherwise, you can store passwords locally on your computer only.
