The new update has brought a feature that will alert you if there’s any threat to your password. According to Google, the updated version of Password Checkup on Android will let users check their saved credentials for security vulnerabilities and offer a list of actions to improve the security. On top of this, the Google Assistant will now send you an alert when browsing on a deceptive site for which you’d saved a password earlier. It will then help you automatically generate a new password for that website and help curb security vulnerabilities.
