It’s generally not a good idea to share passwords. This is because you don’t know if the person you’re sharing the password with might have a compromised device that could be logging keystrokes, or they could accidentally share your password with someone else, causing problems for your accounts could lead.
However, it seems Google could be working on something for Chrome if you ever need to share a password. According to user Leopeva64 on Twitterthey discovered that Google added a new “Send Password” button to Chrome’s built-in password manager.
It’s unclear how this will work, as Chrome already allows users to copy their passwords, so this password-sharing feature could arguably be a more secure version. It could be similar to how Google handles file sharing on Google Drive, where only selected users have access and the actual password may not be shown and users can click a link to log into a website.
The button doesn’t seem to be working at the moment, so it’s safe to say Google is still working on it, but it’s an intriguing idea and we can’t wait to see how Google can manage password sharing in a secure way.
