    A software developer has discovered a critical security flaw in the highly popular Google Chrome browser that could put the privacy of potentially millions of users at risk.

    When Chrome users type in a password — say, when checking their email or logging onto Twitter — the browser provides an option where that keyphrase can be remembered for future use. That master list of log-ins isn’t protected itself, however, meaning anyone with access to someone else’s computer can quickly pull up a list of plain-text passwords and essentially have unfettered access to an array of accounts.
