To help users stay safe, Google created a Chrome browser tool which automatically all the password and if any of them has been compromised. These will be checked against Google's internal database of around four billion details that it has identified as being afected via past attacks and breaches.
For those anxious about Google seeing your passwords, the company says that they are encrypted and It has no way of viewing them.
If a username & password combo is found in this database, Google will warn the user that they need to change the password for that account, as they're at risk of having the account hijacked by hackers. But Google also announced a feature that should enhance your security online by telling you which passwords may have been compromised during security breaches targeting various sites, and advising immediate action.
When this feature is enabled, a new option appears in the Chrome Settings panel, in the Passwords section.

In addition to checking if the users' passwords have been leaked before, the enhanced feature can also tell you if the password is being reused across websites. Using the same password across several websites make their job very easy.
