    Google yesterday rolled a new stable version of the company’s web browser, Chrome 79 for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS. The new web browser comes with several security improvements and better secure browsing protections, including a new feature that will automatically alert you if your passwords have been hacked.

    The biggest highlight of this browser is that Chrome will now automatically warn you if your password has been compromised in a data breach. The new feature was also tweeted by Google CEO Sundar Pichai.

    With the latest release of Chrome, anyone whose login credentials has been leaked in a data breach previously will get a notification when logging into a site.
