|Google security lapse uncovered by Kiwi developer|
Password stored by browser can be shown
| 4:11 am on Aug 9, 2013 (gmt 0)|
|A security flaw in Google's Chrome web browser, which lets anyone with access to a user's computer see all their stored passwords, has been discovered by a Kiwi software developer. |
Should they have a Master Password like Firefox?

I agree with Google: if you let someone log in as you, they are supposed to have access to all your information.

The lack of a master password is apparently intentional. They don't want to give users a false sense of security. You shouldn't be storing passwords in your browser IMHO.

Not important passwords anyway. I would never store a bank password in the browser, but a site that requires registration to read is fine.

|Computerworld - Google should lock up Chrome passwords with a master key to make casual thieves work harder, a security expert said Thursday. |
