Use and manage Autofill

Buy something online

When you’re paying for something online, the credit cards that you’ve saved in Chrome and Google Payments will automatically show up in a drop-down list. You might be asked for a CVC number to verify the card that you choose. Note that some sites may not be secure enough to generate and use autofill entries for payment forms.

If you don't want Chrome to have to verify your card every time, follow these steps:

  1. In the credit card field number, choose the credit card that you want to use from the list.
  2. Enter the CVC number that’s on the back of your credit card. On American Express cards, it’s on the front.
  3. To save the whole card number on your computer or mobile device, leave Keep a copy of this card on this device ticked. This lets you skip this step next time you use this card.
  4. Touch or click Verify.

Note: Chrome only gives you two chances to enter the right CVC number. After two attempts, you’ll have to wait before trying again.
