This looks like a fairly standard “log-in” page, but it’s not. It’s what we call a “phishing” webpage, a site run by people looking to receive and steal your account password. If you type your password here, attackers could steal it and gain access to your Google email Account—and you may not even know it. This is a common and a dangerous trap: the most effective phishing attacks can succeed 45 percent of the time, nearly 2 percent of email to Gmail are designed to trick people into giving up their account passwords, and various services across the website send millions upon millions of phishing e-mails, every day.

To help keep your email account safe, today we’re launching Password Alert, a free, open-source Chrome extension that protects your Google and Google Apps for Work email Accounts. Once you’ve installed it, Password Alert will show you a warning if you type your Google account password into a site that isn’t a Google “sign-in” page. This protects you from phishing web attacks and also encourages you to use different passwords for different websites, a security best practice.

Here's how it works for consumer email accounts. Once you’ve installed and initialized Password Alert, Chrome will remember a “scrambled” version of your Google email 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 account “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 account password and protect yourself.

Google account password alert is also available to Google for work customers, including Google Apps and Drive for Work. Your administrator can install Account Password Alert for everyone in the domains they manage, and receive alerts when Password Alert detects a possible problem. This can help spot malicious attackers trying to break into employee accounts and also reduce password reuse. Administrators can find more information in the Help Center.

We work to protect users from phishing attacks in a variety of ways. We’re constantly improving our Safe Browsing technology, which protects more than 1 billion people on Chrome, Safari and Firefox from phishing and other dangerous websites via bright, red warnings. We also offer tools like 2-Step Verification and Security Key that people can use to protect their Google Accounts and stay safe online. And of course, you can also take a “Security Checkup” at any time to make sure the safety and security information associated with your email account is current.
