Google Chrome now remembers the passwords your bank doesn’t want it to
Google Chrome 34 arrived on the Stable Channel yesterday, and it brought with it the usual security patches and stability tweaks as well as a few new features. Among them: the password manager will now store passwords for sites that normally block that from happening (like your bank’s or credit card company’s).
Typically, sites like banks will disable built-in password managers by adding the autocomplete=off parameter to the password input field. They consider it a security risk to store credentials for their services, which may be true in some cases.
Bad move on Google's part. Storing passwords in any browser is not secure.
