How to perform a security check-in Chrome for Android?
The security check is responsible for analyzing three critical points that could pose a risk to our account: updates, passwords, and secure browsing. The browser will take care of analyzing these three fields, to discover potential threats or security breaches that have been detected in any of them. It is a good way to be aware of problems and take action. The steps to perform this check are:
- Open Google Chrome on Android.
- Click on the three vertical dots.
- Go to Settings.
- Go to the Security check.
- Click on the Check Now button.
- Wait for the scan to run.
- If it shows that there is a security problem, perform the steps indicated to correct it (update the browser, change the password or enable secure browsing).
This security check is a new tool in the browser, but it is a good help to protect your account against possible security problems. You can see if Google Chrome is up to date, if your account passwords are compromised or have been compromised (usually warns about those that are repeated a lot and should be changed as soon as possible) or if you should use secure browsing in the browser.
If you have doubts about the security of any of your accounts or you’re just curious to see what this security check does, you can already try this new feature in the popular browser on Android.
