You can disable Google Chrome’s Password Safety feature if you continuously receive the alert and are annoyed with it.

After disabling the toggle switch, you will no longer receive alerts for account details that were exposed in a data breach.

Bottom Line

There is an option within the Chrome app on iPhone and iPad to check the password breach under the Passwords tab manually. However, it won’t alert or bug you like it does on Android or computers.

There are over 600 users upvoted in the Google Support Forums to stop this alert or at least suppress it. The toggle switch to the warning alert will help you manage the same.

  1. I understand the concept, but it grabs passwords that are on network islands like my cameras, I have passwords on the because the camera access requires it, I do not need it. I also have other devices on my home LAN, they have a password but I keep it simple as I do not need to worry about them being accessed, but google keeps on insisting that the cameras and IoT devices have been compromised. I wish that they would have some way to turn off this function for blocks of IP addresses. That in my case would clear it up but allow it to work for other things which are critical.

  2. Hope this works, it’s driving me nuts! It pops up constantly, even when I didn’t enter a password. Also suddenly all my history is gone and I have to login to sites every time and fill in fields that used to autofill. I didn’t change any settings. Surely there’s an easy way to fix this, but I can’t find it.

  3. I am trying to stop chrome from aging me about password but when I checked y warn you if passwords are exposed is not checked how can I stop this nuisance.

    1. Hi Eve, please follow these steps to stop the data breach pop-up in Chrome iPhone or iPad:
      1. Launch the Chrome browser.
      2. Tap on 3 dots for the menu list.
      3. Select the Settings from the list.
      4. Choose the ‘Sync and Google Services’ tab.
      5. Scroll down and toggle off – Warn you if passwords are exposed in a data breach.

      This will stop checking for the password breach and eventually won’t bother you. Hope this helps!

  4. This option does not do what you think – it stops checking for new breaches to warn you about.
    if you already get the warning, turning this off does not stop it showing up.
