Chrome has turned its ugly head and is now staring down password management on the iPhone.
Today, Google announced that it is bringing five new features to the Chrome app on iOS. One of those features will bring Google Password Manager, which is already supported on the Chrome Mac app, to the iPhone.
If users want, they can switch their password management from Safari to Chrome. Once changed, they'll be able to use Google Password Manager to create, store, and autofill passwords across websites and apps on their iPhones.
Switching password managers on the iPhone isn't new. Apps like LastPass and 1Password are already supported on iOS. Google is just finally getting around to adding Chrome to the list.
Another major feature coming to Chrome on iOS is Enhanced Safe Browsing, which will warn users when attempting to visit dangerous websites.
You can check out all of the features on Google's blog post.
