Google is taking some serious heat for the way Chrome can reveal all your saved passwords to anyone with access to your computer. Yet Google has defended the move, with Chrome's security tech lead arguing that further password protection measures would only provide a "false sense of security."
The issue has to do with the way Chrome stores passwords that the user has decided to save. All of these passwords are the listed in chrome://settings/passwords. Clicking on a password in this list, and then clicking the "Show" button, exposes the password in plain text.
