Keeping security in mind Goole will provide a proper shortcut for Password Manager on Android. With Cybersecurity Awareness Month around, Google is using this opportunity to share security-oriented updates for accounts and apps.
According to AndroidPolice, Google will be rolling out a feature in the Google app. It will allow you to access all passwords you saved in Google Password Manager right from the Google App menu.
Looks like you will get an app menu, supposed to be the account icon in the top right corner of the Google app which opens a menu when u Tap it as seen in the images below.Earlier you were required to know where to navigate to on the web (passwords.google.com) or you’d have to go hunting for the entry in your Google account settings. With the introduction of the shortcut, you can now view all the passwords right in the account switcher menu. This makes it easy to access for millions of users who may have not even known where to find it in the first place.
For iOS users of Google, they were able to use Google or Chrome apps for auto-filling passwords in third-party applications. Now Google plans to roll out an option that will suggest passwords, a feature that has been available for Android for a long time.
Google will also enroll more users into its two-step authentication process, the process requires both a Google password and a second factor like a phone, security key, or an OTP code to log in. Google will automatically enroll 150 million users by the end of the year and requires 2 million YouTube creators to turn it on.
Google has launched its new sign-in method for third-party apps called One Tap. It will allow users to sign up for or log in to apps with only one additional tap, without requiring a password, and is already live on Reddit, Pinterest, and more.
