Several new capabilities have been added to Google password manager in the newest version, which was unveiled by the search engine on Thursday (30). It is hoped that the adjustments would make the user experience on all platforms easier and more user-friendly.
One of the important breakthroughs is the option to manually add passwords to the tool, rather than waiting for the big tech browser to offer the capacity to save them. According to the Mountain View corporation, the new feature was requested by consumers.
Users with many logins for the same website or application will be able to access the service more easily thanks to the program’s ability to automatically group their credentials. Android users will be able to use Chrome’s biometric verification feature by creating a shortcut on the system’s home screen, which will allow them to log in faster.
Chrome users on iOS should still expect to see some improvements. As long as the company’s browser is enabled as the supplier for autofilling access codes, Google Password Manager can be used to manage passwords for apps.

Chrome, Chrome OS, Android, iOS, Windows, Linux, and macOS have also been upgraded with the program’s compromised credentials detection system. Data breaches on the internet can now be alerted to the user, so that they can take appropriate action.
Additionally, if the programme spots instances of weak or repeated passwords on Android, it will notify the user. The automatic password change option can be used by the user if they receive such a notification.
Google’s password manager will progressively roll out these and other updates, and they should be available to all users within the next few days.
