Chrome browser is going to tighten the security on "Touch to Fill" with the help of Biometric Re-authentication

Chrome browser can help the user in filling the forms securely anywhere on the web whether you are typing your ID, username, or password to sign in to your email account, and it can even help you with your credit card number when you are about to do online shopping. Chrome announced this feature about a year ago that was much useful for many users because it saves the time of users. The password manager of Chrome assist you to save the password for the website you recently visited in case if you want to visit this site again in future, for instance, you almost open your Facebook account daily, so Chrome helps you to save the password to save your time when you open this website again. Now the Chrome is going to tighten the security on "Touch to Fill" with the use of Biometric Re-authentication because it will build up the trust of users in the browser.

Many people around the world especially in the US have concerns for their privacy for getting hacked as according to a survey report; more than 50% of Americans care about their privacy more than even their lives. Chrome is testing a new feature that will let users re-authenticated before entering the password into the website forms. This is for the safety purpose of the user because Chrome does not want that the hackers try to access the private data of the users. Chrome is introducing the Bio-metric verification to get your fingerprint sensor before you open the website and this will be the most secure way to save and then re-open the website. Just like every mobile user has enabled privacy through a fingerprint sensor. Chrome may ask you to enter the fingerprint sensor for one time soon before typing your secret password into a website.

If you are using the desktop version of Chrome, it may ask you to re-enter your password merely when you are about to see the saved password, however, the Chrome browser does not request you to re-enter the password of your Google account whenever you try to log in to website with already saved the password. When you are using Chrome on an Android device, you may see the new feature for your privacy named biometric-verification that will be convenient for every user simply to just tap your fingerprint to accept a login. Google has recently added a new trial flag to test this verification feature. You may try this bio-metric verification feature on the Canary version of Chrome soon.
