Windows 7: Google Chrome now remembers the passwords your bank doesn’t want it to

Google Chrome now remembers the passwords your bank doesn’t want it to

Quote:
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.
