Compromised credentials? Google can now change website passwords for you

We'll still need to see how this feature works in the real world, but Google's demo says you'll be able to tap a single button to have Google register a new password with whatever site you're on.

Google scans your credentials against a big list of compromised usernames and passwords every time you log in, and if it detects bad credentials, the "Check Password" screen will pop up.

If Google changes your passwords, you can consider them compromised again, because they are known to a 3rd party. Do it right, do it yourself, and don't trust Google.
