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 that they can’t be read by Google.

To change your compromised password when you get an alert:

  1. Tap Password Checkup.
    • If you get an alert that says 'Change automatically', tap it to allow Chrome to help you change and save your password.

  2. Follow the prompts to change your password on each site.

How Chrome saves and syncs passwords

How Chrome saves your passwords depends on whether you want to store and use them across devices. When synced, you can use passwords on Chrome on all your devices, and across some apps on your Android devices.
