When purchasing items online, you always need some form of payment. While many sites allow other options such as PayPal or cryptocurrencies, card transactions are an almost universal payment method.
If you’ve got multiple payment cards though, it can be difficult to remember all the details without getting any of the cards confused. To help with this the Edge browser for Android allows you to save your card details to the autofill feature. With autofill, you only need to look up your card details once, then you can just autofill the saved details.
How to add a card to autofill
To add a payment card to the autofill feature, you need to open the in-app settings. the first step is to tap the triple-dot icon in the centre of the bottom bar.
To open the settings, you need to tap the “Settings” icon in the top right corner of the popup pane.
Next, you need to tap “Autofill and payments”, which will be the third option from the top of the settings.
In the autofill and payments page, tap “Cards” to go to the list of your saved cards.
Tip: Ensure that “Autofill forms” is enabled on this page for autofill to be able to work.
Here you will see a list of your saved cards. To add a new card, tap the blue plus-sign icon labelled “Add card”.
Now you need to enter your payment card details, including the name on the card, the card number, the expiry date.
Tip: For security reasons, the CVV code on the back of your card used for online transactions is not saved. You will have to remember which CVV goes with which card. This prevents anyone with access to your browser from having all the details they need to make a purchase.
Additionally, you can choose to configure the payment card to have an address also saved in the autofill settings to be listed as the billing address.
Once you’ve checked that your card details are correct, tap “Save”.
Tip: You can remove a saved card by tapping on it in the list of saved cards, then tapping the trash icon in the top-right corner.
