Chrome Password Checkup 1.09
Quickly check if a website password has been compromised

When you create a new password for any website, how often do you choose something you can remember, often on the basis you'll get around to changing it later? Worse, some websites have strange password entry form which won't allow you to use your password manager to create a strong random password and then store it securely. You are forced to choose something you can remember.

The problem here is you often never get around to changing this insecure password and if it leaks or the website database is hacked, and you've used the password elsewhere, then suddenly you are compromised and the hacker has access to various websites with your information.

Chrome Password Checkup is a simple extension which will check the password used for a website and then against and an online database (we're assuming, Have I Been Pwned) and will warn you if the password/login data has been previously compromised and will suggested you choose another and stronger password.

And that's about it. There's no password generator or suggestion tool (but Chrome will offer a strong random password for most websites). It's just a basic warning and an indication if your data is still secure.

Verdict:

Very basic extension which will keep one eye on whether your login/password information has been compromised.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.20

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.20 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
