To save us time and typing, Chrome has a time auto-completion of forms. The browser allows us to automatically fill our user name and passwords, addresses and payment methods.

Now to make the auto more secure and comfortable, Google announces two significant developments that will Chrome for Android in the next few days: the biometric authentication and the new auto-completion of passwords.


Biometric authentication

Chrome with authentication bimétrica

Currently, every time that we want to Chrome goal all the data of a credit or debit card details that we have saved in our account we have to put the CVC code. In the coming weeks, Chrome will activate the biometric authentication for that using our fingerprint, face or iris we can fill in the payment method in the forms.

In the future, when we go to make a purchase, Chrome we will put back the CVC code for the card but we asked if for the following purchases we want to use biometric authentication. So you do not have to memorize the CVC code of our cards.

Improved autocomplete

Auto-completion

The password manager of Chrome also gets an important novelty, and it is a new pop-up window will allow us to automatically populate our user name and password with less taps on the screen. We will display all accounts for that website for you to fill in all the fields to log.
