Google Chrome: Autofill passwords and cards is safer

Google Adds Biometric Security Checks and Touch-to Fill to Chrome

Be that as it may, on the off chance that you decide to turn on biometric authentication - it's totally discretionary and can be found in Chrome's Settings page - you just need to type in your CVC the first time when you use a card. So, when you need to purchase something online, the credit card number will be filled out automatically, but you'll have to touch the phone's fingerprint sensor to get the CVC filled out as well. There is also an option in the Chrome browser to disable this functionality.

Patrick Nepper, Google Chrome Product Manager, and Stan Li, Google Payments Product Manager, announced two new features heading to Chrome on the Chromium blog. Basically, you will be able to set up biometric authentication to work with payment information on Chrome and use it seamlessly. The novelty is already available in the browser for Windows and Mac will be added in Chrome for Android in the coming weeks.

Chrome's new credit card autofill feature builds on its support for WebAuthn, a biometric authentication standard. For example, passwords can be more complex and unique for each site or service (making them harder to guess) because you don't have to remember them and, unlike a human, the software also can't easily be tricked into entering them into fake phishing sites, Google says.


No scrolling, searching, or manual filling will be required when the user is met with a sign-in request.

Furthermore, Google is planning to introduce an improved autofill feature that will facilitate the process of entering information when accessing various accounts. Truth be told, mobile browsers have been running behind developments trying to catch up to the users' needs for quite some time now, but it's better late than never.
