Google merges Chrome and Android password managers

Google has announced a massive update to its password manager that will finally bring a unified interface for Chrome and Android. It's not limited to design: the manager will learn to automatically group different passwords for the same sites or applications, and a shortcut will appear on the Android home screen for quick access to these passwords.

Also on Android, Google Password Checker will now flag weak and reused passwords and suggest you to replace them with stronger ones. Chrome on all platforms will add notifications when one of a user's passwords has been compromised.

In response to a popular request from users, Google Password Manager on all platforms has also added the ability to manually add passwords. In addition, Chrome on iOS has learned how to generate strong passwords (but this will require you to select Chrome as your default autofiller).

All these innovations have already begun to spread, but it may take a few weeks before they become available to all users.
