Google Chrome Exposes Passwords


By General Maddox.
In an incredible revelation, a YouTube user illustrates in his video that Google Chrome users are susceptible to having their passwords, ALL of their passwords displayed for all to see.

Anytime you agree to having Chrome save your password, say for example your online email account or perhaps your online banking password, Chrome stores these passwords and all anyone has to do on your computer is type this into the address bar:
chrome://settings/passwords

According to the uploader Google is aware of the security risk but states that it doesn’t see this as a security flaw.

Google has a sordid track record when it comes to people’s privacy and their apparent disregard for it. See these examples for instance.
Google $7 Spy Settlement
Google Street View Harvesting Emails and Passwords

It’s probably a good idea not to allow your browser, no matter what popular brand you’re using, to save your passwords. There are many websites around that can show you how to protect yourself online.
