Re: Google uploading your plain text passwords

I am not the brightest bulb in the house, but when I try to go to, I get the following response:

Google can’t check your passwords for security issues because you set up a passphrase to encrypt your passwords in your Google Account. This keeps the data private to you. Learn more.

This occurs on my Google Chrome browser, which does sync my passwords between devices because I have the browser signed into my personal account, and my Brave browser, which is never signed in with any Google accounts.

I don’t remember setting a passphrase, but apparently I did. I can’t remember if I did that because I did see a behaviour, such as showing me all my passwords with little to no effort, or it was offered as a security feature and I said, “Yes, please.”
