Keeping your Google password safe

, posted: 30-Apr-2015 16:24

Phishing attacks really are the worst.  They are a page that looks exactly like a legitimate login page you are familiar with (such as Google, Facebook, Twitter etc) but behind the scenes they are actually sending your email address and password to a third party.  With these details they can cause all sorts of havoc.

Today Google has announced Password Alert which is a Chrome extension that will warn you if you enter your details into a site that isn’t one theirs.  Everyone can slip up if you’re not paying close attention, so this app should help keep your login details safe.

I highly recommend this if you are a Google + Chrome user.  I have seen far too many client’s details being compromised from a moment’s inattention.
