Google Chrome for Android will team up with Assistant to see if your password has been leaked online.
Google is updating itself to be more functional in every way for the user and now, thanks to Chrome and the Assistant, it will be able to change your stolen passwords automatically.
If Chrome for Android detects that you are using a password that has been leaked or stolen online, it will notify you and offer to change it automatically through the Assistant.
Chrome will open all the relevant links to change your password and suggest a secure replacement. The user will also be able to enter a password of their choice if they prefer.
As Android Police points out , Chrome will only offer to automatically change your password on select websites.
This automatic password change tool is exclusive to the Chrome app for Android. It is slowly rolling out to all users, so it may take a few days to reach your device.

You can manually check the filtration
The outlet also reports that there is an option to manually check if your passwords saved by Chrome have been compromised. The “Check passwords” option is available in the “Passwords” submenu in the browser settings.
The security feature is based on Google’s “Duplex on the Web” technology , which is designed to quickly carry out tasks such as buying movie tickets, checking in for flights or ordering food. It does this by automating the more routine parts of the process, like scrolling, clicking through multiple pages, and filling out forms.
If you don’t have the feature yet, you can use Have I Been Pwned to find out if your passwords have been revealed online.
