Google Chrome now allows you to use your fingerprint to pay in stores

As of today, Google Chrome for Android is a somewhat safer browser: the app has been updated to include fingerprint verification or face recognition upon automatic completion of saved credit card data to make payments in online stores.

Therefore, it will not be necessary to enter the three-digit CVC code every time you want to use it to perform a transaction through the browser. It will be enough to place a fingerprint on the reader, or only show our face to the facial recognition system.

The company itself has announced this franchise through the official Chromium Blog, stating that every time a website requests to enter debit or credit card details, the browser will display a new popup to place our mark without the need to enter additional data.

The Chrome team confirms that this verification method is already active in the browser, although the update it performs is on its way to Android devices through the Chrome update that will arrive throughout these weeks. In addition, they indicate that they are working on similar new jobs that will be available over the months.
