Google Chrome, despite its shadows, is still the browser par excellence today. Everyone knows it and a majority uses it for its versatility, the enormous number of extensions available to it and how well it works together with the rest of the Mountain View services.
One of those features that is really cool and effective is the security check it has been offering recently. A feature perhaps unknown to the general public who it can be very useful to know if we are protected both in Chrome and in other platforms.
The security check allows us to know whether we are protected in Google Chrome or in other platforms, even by checking our passwords

The Chrome Security Check
To get going the security check included in Google Chrome, we simply have to go to the menu, access Setting, then enter the section Privacy & Security and finally find the part of the Security check.
Here we will see a button, Check now, which we will have to click for this check to be carried out. It doesn’t take more than that click.
What the Mountain View browser will do then is check that Google Chrome is up to date with its updates, that none of the passwords that we have saved in the browser has been violated, that the protection is activated and therefore we browse safely (although if we have the standard active it will suggest activating the enhanced protection) and that we have protection against potentially harmful extensions.
It does not hurt to access especially the password and secure browsing section
This, a priori, it may seem like a lesser protection because we understand that they are analyzed in the Chrome extensions store. However, as the case of The Great Suspender has shown us, it does not hurt.
Regardless of whether the test is positive, It does not hurt to access especially the password and secure browsing section. In the first, to make sure that no password is detected as weak, and in the second, to review the protection and other related options such as the DNS configuration that is worth checking and checking that they are to our liking.
The check, with some minor differences, can also be done from Google Chrome for Android.
