Safari’s Credit Card Storage Speeds Up Online Shopping

Safari’s Credit Card Storage Speeds Up Online Shopping

February 6, 2014         Written By Natalie Rutledge

Safari users may now be able to check out faster online, thanks to the web browser’s credit card storage services. If you use Safari in OS X Mavericks, you could use Apple’s Secure Credit Card storage to automatically fill in the information when you shop online.

The process is fairly simple. Go to the Autofill section of the preferences in Safari and check the box next to “Credit Cards”. This will open a web form that allows you to enter information about your cards. Save the information after it is complete or edit what you have already stored. Then, when you go to check out, Safari will ask if you would like it to fill in the credit card information for you.

There are a lot of online programs available that offer similar services, in case you are not a Mac or Safari user. Be aware they all come with their own security issues. These may not pose any greater risk than your credit card online, but you need to keep an eye on your accounts once you store information like this.

Safari’s program does not store the CVV number on the back of your credit card, so you may still need to have access to that piece of data when making an online purchase. This code is used as a form of identity verification with most credit card transactions.
