As early as 2018, Microsoft introduced web authentication specifications for Edge browsers, paving the way for a Windows Hello-based password-free login scheme. Later that year, Microsoft followed up with the ability to log into its own account with a FIDO2 key. Now, Google is ready to support Windows Hello payment certification in Chrome.
Even though the company has previously supported the Web Authenticate API, the new feature allows users to make it easier to pay through Windows Hello.
Over the years, people have become accustomed to manually entering the CVC code on the back of a credit card to complete payments. But with Windows Hello certified payments enabled, users can easily swipe their faces or fingerprints in chrome browsers to verify payments.
If you need to shop online regularly, go directly to Google Chrome’s settings page and find the Windows Hello option in Your Payment, choose on or off, and then click On to pay.
