Google recently fixed a series of issues within the Chrome browser. At the same time, despite their strong attempts to secure internet transactions, experts agree that Chrome isn’t the best browser to share or store your private information. It was revealed that Chrome stores all of your data including private numbers, credit card information, bank logins and other important credentials in plain text.
In the case that an attacker manages to gain access, they can easily read every piece of data stored within Chrome and share it online or sell it to other third parties who will likely use it to steal your money. If you value your private data and are keen on making sure that it does not fall into the wrong hands, it’s a good idea to follow the suggested rules.
Why does Google Chrome store your private data as plain text within the web history log on the local drive? Because this makes it easy for the browser to retrieve information whenever required, without user authentication. Some users prefer this convenience because they don’t want to retype the same information again and again on different web pages. While this convenience is helpful to many people, it ultimately comprises Internet security by putting the user’s integral data at risk of being stolen.
In an attempt to prove the security risks, experts created malware with the capability to enter your computer and send all of your personal information anonymously to a third party. The malware managed to complete the task without much difficulty. The security experts’ final report confirmed that if the data had been encrypted, either by the Chrome browser or the running operating system, no malware attack would be able to retrieve it quite so easily. Consequently, the current lack of security features stops critics from suggesting Chrome as the safest browser around.
Meanwhile, Google claims that Chrome is a user friendly browser and is not as vulnerable as experts suggest. Designed to provide the best Internet security possible, Chrome aims to provide users with all the freedom they need. A simple fix for Chrome is to use encryption when storing data on the local drive. Likewise, a simple fix for users is to simply choose not to store credit card data or other sensitive information on the local drive, essentially avoiding the chance of falling victim to malware attacks based on this security vulnerability. Take security measures into your own hands to prevent your personal data from falling into the wrong hands.
