What are you scared of? I’m scared of spiders. Like, terrified, I think it’s safe to say.
A close second though, is the fear of being hacked. I know I am not the only one who asks myself…Am I safe to use my phone? What about my computer?? Google Home??? Smart TV!!?? Nest Thermostat!!!??? My goodness, I have too many devices! LOL
We all have electronic devices and are vulnerable to some degree, so being hacked is a legitimate fear in 2019. Maybe even something that would make you lose sleep.
Enter Google. They have released a new Chrome extension that will notify you if you have entered a username / password combination that Google “knows to be unsafe.”
They have even created “Cross Account Protection,” to help keep you safe on other apps that you have signed into with your Google credentials.
So if you are worried about your username or password being compromised, check out the Chrome extension link below.
