I just got an email from Google letting me know that some passwords I saved in Chrome were leaked in a third party breach.

Luckily, I had changed the passwords for KeePassXC long ago.

Does it mean that Google keeps my passwords in plaintext though?

I don't mean that they don't encrypt the data at rest. I mean that even if they do, they have the access to the key to decrypt it and have access to my plaintext passwords at any point.

I don't like it.

@alxd Seems fishy. They might be hashing them and then sending that hash off somewhere?

Not a good idea regardless.
