Hey I want to take pot shots at the most used/biggest thing out there.


No, here is the part we "forget", and I believe THIS was the point of the article.
If you use google Chrome, they have ACCESS to every site, and EVERY password you have, whether you saved it or not (on the basis that they process the screen/html). So, they could certainly, grab/steal/store ALL of your details (and most probably do). Waiting for a hack to come through that exposes EVERYTHING about you.

But it gets worse. They have a political agenda, too. Maybe you are MILO or someone they despise. What do they know about you? Hmm, your bank, your username, your password, which IP addresses you come in from. [My bank ties my IP down, and requires special authorization to use from elsewhere], but if I use a VPN, and they know the company. THEN they just dial through that VPN, and come out the other end with full access?

We have way too much trust. I remember when the biggest issue was spam.
And I use 3 different browsers, including Brave.

Chrome is COMFY and basically works. But I don't do my banking on it!

Now imagine when you use a MFA key, using a google MFA APP. LMAO. Does that suddenly give you the creeps? Or worse, the QR code was DISPLAY by a chrome browser that recognized it was a QR code. And then knew the next 2 numbers you keyed in to authenticate the device.

Oh, are we soooo trusting... [don't worry, SSL/TLS promises us that ONLY GOOGLE/CHROME/BROWSER and YOU know the details. I only trust ME in that relationship].
