Windows Hello Can Now Be Used To Complete Payments In Google Chrome
Windows Hello is a more personal, more secure way to get instant access to your Windows 10 devices using fingerprint, facial recognition, or a secure PIN.
Windows Hello sign-in mechanism is also supported on the web-based services, courtesy of the FIDO2 protocol.
Google is now rolling out a new server-side update that enables support for Windows Hello-based payment feature in Chrome for Windows 10. With the new feature, you will be able to use Windows Hello to autofill credit card’s CVC numbers, which are found on the back of cards.
If you use Chrome and your device supports Windows Hello, you can enable the feature by following these steps:
- Open Chrome settings.
- Head to Autofill section and click ‘Payment methods’.
- You’ll see a new toggle for Windows Hello.
- Toggle it on and confirm your decision to use Windows Hello for future payments.
Once enabled, Windows Hello will allow you to skip the manual CVC-based authentication on payment services. You can use your fingerprint, facial recognition, or PINs to make credit card payments without entering the CVC numbers.
