After upgrade to the latest Chrome version, the following message is thrown in Clarity:

Change your password.
A data breach on a site or app exposed your password. Chrome recommends changing your password on <server> now


Your password is most likely weak, and Chrome is alerting you about this. 


Release : All Supported

Component : Clarity Application

Browser: Chrome


If your site is over internet and globally accessible:

  1. You should change your password to something stronger with more characters, numbers and special characters
  2. If this is not yet done, go to Clarity -> Administration->System Options and set minimum requirements for passwords. 
  3. Save changes. This will apply the requirements to all users. 

If your site is intranet and only available on your company network:

  1. Generally it should be acceptable not to change the password in Clarity, although it is still best practice to update it to be strong.
  2. You may disable the Chrome warning in chrome://settings/security
  3. Uncheck Warn you if passwords are exposed in a data breach
