Google tests biometric support for its autofill feature on Android

You may well already use Google’s autofill feature, which remembers your passwords, addresses, credit cards, and other details, then puts them into forms for you on Android and inside Chrome. Now it looks as though the tool is getting a security boost.

As spotted by XDA Developers, Android code that’s not yet been enabled suggests biometric authentication will soon be added to the autofill feature, so you’ll need a fingerprint or a face unlock to use it.
