In order to increase the security on its browser, the internet giant has developed Chromium for OS X. The new software needs users to authenticate the login with their computer's system password to gain access to the list of stored passwords.

Earlier anyone could access the passwords by navigating to chrome://Settings/Passwords in the browser and gain information of the login/password data a user saved on Chrome.

Google suggests that users should lock their systems when not using it so as to save it from any vulnerability of being exploited, the report added.
