The security of our mobile phones is something that is never other to improve. One of the applications most affected by the attacks is the web browser, which is why it is a very good news that Google has confirmed two security improvements on Chrome for Android.
Identification with fingerprint
Currently, when we make a purchase using Chrome for Android with our credit card we ask for the CCV, the three-digit code that is on the back. This is to confirm that we are the holders of this card.
With the next update of the application will only be necessary to give to the LCC when we use the card for the first time in Chrome. From the second time we asked for that we identify with our fingerprint using the sensor of mobile. In function of the mobile phone could also be activated by other systems of biometric identification such as iris recognition in some mobile phones, Samsung.
In this way we will not have to take the card out of our wallet each time we go to use it.
This feature was already available in Chrome for Windows and Mac, and in the next few weeks will also be operational on the Android phones.
Improving the management of passwords in Chrome for Android
Other changes that we will see in Chrome for Android is a new password manager.
The change is visual, but to make it much more difficult for web sites attempting to impersonate him because it will appear as a window of Android, not as a pop-up window within the web page or application in question. The position of the new dialog box will be more comfortable to use one-handednot having to travel to the part of the screen where you are entering the password.
The entry for Chrome for Android will be updated with biometric authentication and better auto-completion of passwords. it appears first on The Android Free.
