Use virtual card numbers with Autofill

When you save a Capital One card to your Google Account, you can create a virtual card that keeps your card info hidden. To help protect you from fraud, you can use this card for online purchases.

This feature is currently only available in the US through Capital One.

About virtual cards in Autofill

If you enroll a virtual card for Autofill, you can keep your actual card number hidden when you check out on merchant websites.

Other virtual card features include:

  • You can use your virtual card for online purchases everywhere that your physical card can be used.
  • When you pay online, Chrome can automatically fill out your payment info for your virtual card, including the CVV.
    • If you use this feature, you may be asked to verify your identity with a temporary code sent to your phone.

The card number, expiration date, and CVV for the virtual card are different from your physical card and may change.
