Google Chrome is bringing secure virtual credit cards
#1
People who use Google's Chrome browser and Android devices will be able to make online purchases without handing over their credit card details to retailers, the search giant said Wednesday, unveiling a new feature that stores the information.

Making payments online is fraught with potential dangers, and there is risk involved with making purchases with your credit card. To help offer a level of protection, many companies -- including the likes of Revolut -- enable their customers to create virtual, disposable credit cards.

“This is a landmark step in bringing the security of virtual cards to as many consumers as possible,” said Google Vice President and General Manager of Payments Arnold Goldberg. “Shoppers using Chrome on desktop and Android can enjoy a fast checkout experience when shopping online while having the peace of mind knowing that their payment information is protected.”

The feature, which is scheduled to roll out this summer for Visa and American Express cardholders, as well as for people with Capitol One cards from either Visa and Mastercard, makes Chrome the first browser to support the use of virtual card numbers without an extension or extra software on a device, Google said. Google unveiled the feature at its annual I/O developers conference, held at its Mountain View, California, headquarters.

Google's Jen Fitzpatrick says:

    This eliminates the need to manually enter card details like the CVV at checkout, and they’re easy to manage at pay.google.com -- where you can enable the feature for eligible cards, access your virtual card number, and see recent virtual card transactions. Virtual cards will be rolling out in the US for Visa, American Express, Mastercard and all Capital One cards starting this summer.

It is one of Google’s biggest announcements at I/O 2022, and it will be available for Android and desktop versions of Chrome first. Google promises to make it available to iOS users later.
