Tech Tip - Stop Password Risk From Google’s Enhanced Spellcheck

It’s been reported that if you have Google’s Enhanced Spellcheck enabled, it could be sending everything you type to Google’s servers, including passwords. Here’s how to stop that from happening:

– To check if you have enabled Google’s ‘Enhanced spell check’ copy and paste chrome://settings/?search=Enhanced+Spell+Check into the Chrome address bar (the omnibox).

– If ‘Basic spell check’ is selected, this is OK because it checks spelling without sending data to Google’s servers.

– If ‘Enhanced spell check’ is selected, unselect it and select ‘Basic spell check’ instead.

– For no spell checking at all, turn off the top-right slider.
