Chrome is going to let Android users check that their passwords are safe from any hacking attacks. The function is already showing up in the test version of the browser.

Chrome has long had a built-in password manager that helps you save your current passwords, but it also allows you to create new, secure passwords. For example, Google prevents users from simply writing down their passwords on sticky notes or using sequential numbers that are too easy to remember them properly.
Still, Google wants to go a step further, because, for the desktop version of Chrome, there is also a password checking system that allows you to check whether one of your passwords has been hacked recently. Google then compares whether your passwords match the passwords that are part of databases with hacked passwords.
This is how you activate it
Google is now releasing that control system for the Android version of Chrome, and you can already test it through the unstable Chrome Canary browser. Enter ‘chrome: // flags’ in the address bar of that browser and confirm. Then use the search function of that web page, search for the word ‘Bulk’ and choose ‘Enabled’ under ‘Bulk password check’. Then tap the button that appears at the bottom of the webpage to restart your browser. You can then go to ‘Settings’ and ‘Passwords’ to find the ‘Check Passwords’ function.
