This happened to me yesterday. I suddenly could no longer login into my battle.net account even though the credentials were typed correctly since I use them almost every day. After recovering my password and logging in on the website this error popped up, I'm a bit concerned lol.

As this is a Google Chrome related issue, likely due to an extension, I’m transferring this post to the google chrome support forum

This is a genuine feature of Chrome built into the latest version. It used to be an extension but now is part of the core browser. If you get this message you need to follow the instructions.

It's legit (i.e. really from Chrome).  My Chrome browser last updated about a week ago [to 'Version 79.0.3945.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)] and I got the popup for the first time today (when logging into DropBox). I found this article: https://lifars.com/2019/08/google-will-warn-you-if-your-credentials-were-exposed/ from August indicating that 'Password Checkup' is a new Chrome feature,  a security service that Google released the beta version of in February. It became widely available as an extension in August and Google indicated then that it was planning to build it directly into its Chrome browser. The article explains what it is and how it works...

I am psychiatricly disabled & do not understand much of what is said here.
I don't understand the the world the way most people do.
Your patience & understanding for us disabled is greatly appreciated.
Does anything truly need to be done?
Please explain what this means in more simple terms.
Please provide exact instructions if we chrome customers need to do anything.
Thank you.

This happened to me after I noticed that my username and password for the specific site I wanted to log in was displayed in the browser on my first attempt to log into the site. I felt something was wrong, and I don't think it has to do with chrome extension.

Ok so I recently downloaded the Hulu App and an App called Relax Melodies before getting this notice. Does anyone else know if they downloaded one of these two Apps recently? I know it's a reach but I need to know what's going on.

i got the same, can google also tell where it was compromised or what app leaked this ?
marked this as an answer
Relevant Answer
I don't care that it is from Google. If they know it is a data breach, then they know which accounts are affected. Telling people they have to change all passwords because one may have been breached is not going to result in more security. These breaches are on a regular basis so if you do not know which one is affected then you will force people to change what could be 50 passwords a week. People will end up keeping lists that are a risk in themselves or ignoring the messages. If they want to be actually helpful they will name the sites with the breach.

Sean, I agree with you. A vague message with no detail is useless!

My question is where did the breach come from. In the past when there have been breaches like this it has made the news and there have even been settlements in some cases. There are only two possible culprits- Google or whatever website you're on that it is prompting you to change the password for. Can we get more info about what happened and how Google knows about it?

I am getting the same pop up on every single site I visit where I have an account - hundreds of sites! Who is responsible for the data breach, when was it "breached" and by whom and to whom?  I am subscribed to a site called Have I been pwned https://haveibeenpwned.com/ which always advises about data breaches but nothing has come recently. So how about an explanation from someone?

Yes, same here. May I know which site holds my passwords? It just seems ridiculous to me because I only use the password within the company's intranet, and I only use the feature "remembering passwords" provided by Chrome. Does something happen on Chrome side?
