With so many areas of modern life requiring identity verification, online security remains a constant concern, especially following the recent spate of global hacks.

If you visit your desktop’s Chrome browser and go to the Settings Password section, you will see that the three-dot icon for your password only allows you to do three things.

These are editing, copying, and removing your password. But, a Google leaker posted a tweet showing that there will be a fourth option to “send password.”

However, he did not provide an explanation of how and where the passwords will be sent.

“Chromium developers already added the option in the 3 dots menu, but when you click on it, nothing happens,” said the leaker.

As of the moment, Google hasn’t confirmed the actual launch date of this new password feature. But, rumors claimed that it would be released as a new function for the current built-in password manager of Google Chrome.

Will This Lead To Security Issues

Since the new Chrome feature involves sending passwords to other parties, some people may think twice about whether they’ll use it or not. 

But, experts said that the new feature might not be intended for regular consumers. Instead, the password sharing function will most likely be used by those working in companies, as reported by Android Police. 

For example, if your company handles different social media accounts or has different services that rely on Chrome, the new password sharing feature will be useful.

It will be safer compared to copying passwords and sending them through other messaging platforms. If you want to see further details about the new Chrome password sharing feature, you can click this link.
