Password Alert Extension


Password Alert helps protect against phishing attacks.

If you enter your Google Account password or Google for Work password into anywhere other than Google's sign-in page, you’ll receive an alert, so you can quickly change your password if needed.

Password Alert also checks each page you visit to see if it's impersonating Google's sign-in page, and alerts you if so.

Does Password Alert store my password or keystrokes?

No. Password Alert doesn’t store your password or keystrokes -- instead, it stores a secure thumbnail of your password, which it compares against a thumbnail of your most recent keystrokes within Chrome.

Where does Password Alert send data?

If you are using Password Alert in a Google Account, Password Alert does not send any data from your local computer. If your Google for Work administrator chooses to deploy Password Alert across your domain, the administrator will receive alerts when Password Alert triggers.

What are Password Alert limits?

Password Alert only operates inside the Chrome web browser when Javascript is enabled. Password Alert doesn't protect Chrome Apps or Chrome Extensions, and it only protect incognito tabs if configured at chrome://extensions. It also does not protect passwords for non-Google services.
