Awesome New Password Protection Feature Added to Chrome

At ThreatSTOP we are unapologetic security geeks, we also happen to be security minimalists. In fact, we think anyone passionate about The Cybers aims to maximize protection with the fewest tools. Why? Because tools break, they have vulnerabilities, they cost money, they require care and feeding, etc. etc.. Is it crazy to think you can secure a network really well with only ThreatSTOP, a firewall, a DNS server, and good password hygiene? Heck no, that's not crazy, what is crazy is that a huge percentage of businesses (skewing to SMB of course) don't even check those minimums off the security must-have list, while lots of companies conversely have become collectors, with a SOC that looks like a virtual RSA tradeshow. So while we daydream about a future where enterprises don't have either zero or 70 different security products that aren't playing nice together, check out our favorite new tool (hah!) for managing passwords:

Google has announced a ton of new password protection features this week after releasing Chrome 88. The new browser version provides users with an easy shortcut to identify weak or compromised passwords and quickly change them. The new key icon will appear under your profile avatar, and clicking it will begin Google’s check for weak passwords. If found, the browser will immediately alert you and offer a one-click password change. Chrome 88 will also let users manage and update multiple passwords in the same place. This feature is currently available for desktop and iOS versions, and will be available for the Android Chrome app soon. Google has already seen a 37% reduction in compromised credentials in 2020 based on the Chrome Safety Check features and other improvements made last year. Today, Chrome’s safety check is used 14 million times every week.

Using that Safe Search is now available via the ThreatSTOP platform. To enable it on your DNS all you have to do is add the relevant list to your policy and the DNS Defense Will automatically do the rest for you. The new targets available to add are:
