Windows Hello can now be used to complete payments in Google Chrome
Quote:Back in 2018, Microsoft introduced the Web Authentication spec in the Edge web browser to pave the way for passwordless sign-in using Windows Hello. Later that year, Microsoft followed it up with the ability to sign in to a Microsoft account using a FIDO2 key.
Now, it looks like Google has added support for payments via Windows Hello. While Google already supports Web Authentication API, the new feature will allow users to authenticate purchases via Windows Hello. The feature aims to replace the use of CVC numbers usually found on the back of cards. By enabling the feature users can use fingerprint or face recognition to approve purchases. If you are someone who transacts a lot using Google Chrome then you can follow the steps below to enable the feature:
  • Open Google Chrome and head to Settings>Payment Methods
  • Look for "Windows Hello" option and click on the toggle to enable the feature.
