[ISN] Google Working on Password Generator for Chrome
By John P. Mello Jr.
Feb 16, 2012
Google is working on a new password manager for its Chrome browser that
would also automatically create strong passwords for users.
The new manager is currently in the design phase, but Google has
described the process by which it would work.
When a user visits a page that Chrome thinks is asking to set up an
account, it will place a key icon in the password field of the
registration form. If the person clicks on that key, Chrome will ask the
user whether he or she wants it to create a password. If the user says
yes, Chrome will generate a password that includes letters, numbers and
characters that make it difficult for a hacker to crack and impossible
for the user to remember -- and ask the user to approve it.
Chrome asks the user to approve the password because it may not jibe
with the rules established by the site for a proper password. That means
a person may have to modify the password manually before accepting it.
