Password Alert for Chrome Description
Phishing is the generic name associated with the malicious process of obtaining sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details by fake, deceitful services. Unfortunately, phishing attacks seem only to increase as each year goes by, so, whether you like it or not, so does the risk of falling victim to such scams.
Since Google offers a stunning variety of web services that can all be accessed via a single username and a single password, you will surely not be frowned upon by taking some extra measures to make sure that your Google credentials don’t fall into the hands of no-do-gooders.
Password Alert is a simplistic yet extremely useful Chrome extension that helps protect your account’s credentials against phishing attacks by constantly scanning each page you visit to check if it’s imitating Google’s official sing-in forms and pages.
Bespoke anti-phishing solution for Google Chrome
Password Alert can be installed on your Chrome browser with a simple click on the “ADD TO CHROME” button, from the Chrome Web Store.
Before anything else, please note that Password Alert springs into action only after you enter your password in Google’s dedicated security section.
Useful extension that helps protect against phishing attacks without making itself noticed
Do not expect much regarding user interaction from this extension, as the only time you will see its compact UI is when it alerts you that you should “immediately reset your password to protect your account.”
