Chrome Now Auto-Fills Payment Details without the Need to Sync Browsers

Chrome Now Auto-Fills Payment Details without the Need to Sync Browsers

July 3, 2019         Written By John H. Oldshue

Google’s team is focused on “making payments in Chrome more convenient.” As a result, users can now access their saved payment details without turning on Chrome sync. This data can be used to auto-fill payment forms at online stores.

Previously, users would have to turn on Chrome sync to populate payment details. The sync feature saves bookmarks, browser history, and other information across all signed-in devices. This makes it easier for a user to recover information if, for example, they get a new Chromebook.

Top Features:

No late fees or interest charges because this is not a credit card it is a prepaid card.

With the new system, users can simply access their saved payment details as long as they are signed into their Google account. It does not matter if they have activated sync.

During the checkout process, Chrome will provide an option to use a card saved to the Google Account. After selecting a card to use, Chrome will ask the user to verify the CVC code for the card. This protects against unauthorized payments.

To edit, delete, or add a card to the account, users can go to Google Account > Payments & subscriptions > Payment methods. Google will send an email any time a payment option is added to or changed within the account.

There is still the option to save card details to a specific device, rather than making it accessible to all devices. Users can add a card to a local device by going to Chrome Settings > Payment methods > Add.
