Google Sets Extra Password Security For Chrome On Windows

Extra password security for Google chrome is not new, as it has already been available to Mac users lately. Now even windows users will be able to secure Chrome with extra password.

As spotted by François Beaufort who is an open-source Chromium evangelist, this features will ask users to authenticate themselves before they can access any saved credentials inside their browser. Earlier, Chrome users could access a plain text list for saved passwords, simply by visiting chrome://settings/passwords. Which could have given easy access of the credentials to unwanted people. 

This new version is still not official, but users can still download it. However, when you make an attempt to download, it will say that this is a raw build of Chromium for Windows, right out of the trunk. Google recommends Chrome Canary of Dev Channel for a build that regularly auto-updates to the latest. 

The download page clearly says this may be tremendously buggy. If you would like to download and explore it further, you can check out the source below.
