There have been many incidents where scammers used fake Google login pages to steal login details to user accounts. Google is finally responding to these scams with a useful Chrome extension that helps you recognize phishing websites.
A phishing site
Password Alert is a free, open-source Chrome extension that notifies you whenever you are about to enter your Google password onto a phishing website. This simple add-on will keep your Google and Google Apps for Work Accounts safe.
“Once you’ve installed and initialized Password Alert, Chrome will remember a “scrambled” version of your Google Account password. It only remembers this information for security purposes and doesn’t share it with anyone. If you type your password into a site that isn’t a Google sign-in page, Password Alert will show you a notice like the one below. This alert will tell you that you’re at risk of being phished so you can update your password and protect yourself.”
