Google is emailing through Google Search Console about a new Google Assistant feature that will offer users the ability to automatically change their passwords to login to your website in Google Chrome. The Chrome feature, I think is several months old, but the notice from Google Search Console, I think, is new.
J.J. James Patterson sent me a screenshot of this notice on Twitter that reads “New Google Assistant feature will go live on [domain here] in two weeks.” Then it says, “in two weeks, Google Chrome will begin to offer some users the ability to automate changing their password on your website using Google Assistant. When this feature is enabled, Google Assistant can perform the following actions on behalf of the user:”
Google said this feature is “powered by Duplex on the Web.” Google said you can disable this feature on your site in Google Search Console.
