Google Chrome now allows users to use Windows Hello, instead of a credit card’s CVC code, to confirm stored credit cards. This new feature enhances security and convenience for online transactions. Users can toggle this option on or off in Chrome’s settings under ‘Payment methods.’ Enabling it will require a Windows Hello PIN or fingerprint.

This article explains using Windows Hello to confirm credit cards faster than CVC in Google Chrome.

Google Chrome is a cross-platform web browser developed by Google. It and Microsoft Edge share the same codebase. They are practically identical in basic functionalities, using browsing activities, including history and other browsing data, to provide personalized ads, search, shopping, and news.

Your Chrome browser has a feature that provides a convenient way to securely manage your physical credit cards and associated addresses so you can automatically autofill forms when completing a purchase or adding personal details online.

When your credit card is stored, Chrome will prompt you to provide the card’s CVC to confirm before using it. Now, you can use Windows Hello to confirm cards faster without CVC.

This new feature adds an extra layer of security as well as convenience.
