CHROME ALLOWS YOU TO SIGN IN WITHOUT A PASSWORDDate: 2018-06-04
Google has recently launched a new Chrome version for desktop (Chrome 67) which will enable individuals to sign into most sites without a password.
How you may ask... Well, the password-free sign in will reportedly enable individuals to sign in to an online service by using unique information or details such as fingerprint readers or USB keys like YubiKey, according to The Verge.
In terms of keeping users data secure, the new Chrome version secures its site isolation. This basically means that browsers will be kept separate from one another so that data cannot be accessed from open tabs.
In other Google Chrome news, Google's former version was released in April this year. The version of Chrome 66 introduced 62 security fixes and feature improvements.
"The Chrome team is delighted to announce the promotion of Chrome 66 to the stable channel for Windows, Mac and Linux. This will roll out over the coming days/weeks", said Google in a statement.
While Chrome had a feature that lets you mute audio on a site-by-site basis, version 67 expands on this by allowing you to customise when media may autoplay.
You will be allowed to customise on the following basis:
1. Content is muted or does not feature audio.
2. You have previously tapped or clicked on the site during the browsing session.
3. On mobile – whether you have has added the site to a home screen.
4. On desktop – if you have frequently played media on the site.
Another ability added to the new Chrome is that it can now export passwords in plain text to a CSV file.
Additionally, 9to5Google showed the “Chrome Home” bottom bar has been redesigned and replaced with the “Chrome Home Duplex” in the Android version. And a new bottom toolbar can be slid up to open a New Tab.
