Future Chrome Versions May Accompany Password Generator

by arupchou on February 17, 2012

In order to make browsing more safe and secure, Google is working on a new password manager for Chrome which will automatically Google Chromegenerate robust passwords for users. Though it is in the design phase, yet Google has described as to how the Password Generator would work.

Working Of Password Generator

When a user surfs a page on the internet which Chrome thinks is asking them to set up an account, then an icon will be placed in the password field of the registration form. If the user clicks that key then Chrome asks him/her whether they want to create a password or not. If the user gives a green signal, then Chrome will generate password which will include number and characters, thereby making it difficult to hacker to crack it.

Chrome will ask the user to agree the password and user need to adjust it manually before accepting it. Once the password is established by the user then Chrome will sync further devices running the browser. It is to be noted that it will sync only if the sync feature is activated by the user in his Chrome account.

Google’s goal is to have browsers validating the identity of the users which will be done through browser sign-in called OpenID. In the company blog, Google has said that as of now users can achieve its objective through Browser Sync and Password Manager but it is still vulnerable to phishing.

With Chrome producing passwords for users the problem can be removed. Google also acknowledges that users might want to see their passwords from time to time and therefore along with password creator it is also thinking of new creating a more secure website where users can see and even print the passwords.

But creating new password manager for Chrome is not that easy. If there is a particular site which has disabled automatic filling up of passwords then the feature will not work. Another danger associated with the process is that all the passwords are stored in a single place and if any hacker can crack a user’s Chrome account, they will be able to access all the passwords.

And finally if the user happens to access a website from a other browser rather than Chrome, then he/she has to remember the passwords which itself is a daunting task since it will contain jumbled words, letters, numbers and characters.

Lastpass.com is a service that is already doing this over multiple browsers, though it is not without its bugs, and it seems that their system improvements have been fewer and fewer over the life of the product.
