Google launches improved password manager

Google has launched an improved version of its built-in password manager.

The company has revealed an upgrade of its tool, which automatically generates a random password for a user when they sign up on a new website.

In a blog post, the tech giant explained: "Staying secure on the web means using strong and unique passwords for every different site.

"When it's time to create a new password, Chrome will now generate one for you (so you're not using your puppy's name for all of your passwords anymore).

"Chrome will save it, and next time you sign in, it'll be there, on both your laptop and phone."

The improvement has come as part of Google's redesign of the Chrome web browser.

Detailing more of the changes, the company has revealed its new look, and wrote: "You can see it across all platforms--desktop, Android, and iOS--where you'll notice more rounded shapes, new icons and a new color palette.

"These updates have a simpler look and will (hopefully) boost your productivity. Take tabs, for instance. Are you a secret tab-hoarder? No judgment. We changed the shape of our tabs so that the website icons are easier to see, which makes it easier to navigate across lots of tabs.

"On mobile, we've made a number of changes to help you browse faster, including moving the toolbar to the bottom on iOS, so it's easy to reach. And across Chrome, we simplified the prompts, menus, and even the URLs in your address bar."
