The technology giant has added support for the web standard, which works by giving websites the password to change the URL. This makes the process of forcing the password of users easier. Using this standard, Chrome will alert users about their passwords being tampered with and will immediately take them directly to the webpage where they can change their password.
Google has also introduced some more features in Chrome 86, which have been released to improve user security. An even better secure browsing feature has been released for Android, through which Chrome will provide you with safe browsing service to protect against phishing, malware and other dangerous sites through real-time data sharing. Google released Enhanced Safe Browsing for desktops earlier this year and reported in a blog post that Predictive Fishing Protection saw a nearly 20 percent drop in the number of users typing their passwords in phishing sites.
Chrome has also added a biometric authentication step before autofilling the password for iOS. You can set authentication using your Face ID, Touch ID or Phone Passcode. If you turn on Chrome Autofill in Settings, Chrome Password Manager will allow you to autofill save passwords in iOS apps or browsers.
Chrome 86 also brings ‘mixed form warnings’ for Android, which will warn users before submitting an unsafe form embedded on the HTTPS page. Such pages give users downloadable content through insecure links or use forms that submit data in an unsafe manner.
