Microsoft Authenticator can now store and sync your payment information and addresses across all devices. Microsoft’s Vishnu Nath announced the new feature in a Windows blog post. Once the app is set up, Microsoft Authenticator can automatically fill in your payment information and addresses on iOS and Android devices.
Microsoft Authenticator already had the ability to sync and auto-fill passwords. With the addition of payment information and address support, the app is now a more robust option for filling out forms on the web. Autofill data is encrypted on devices and in the cloud when synced to hardware. To use Microsoft Authenticator to automatically fill in payment information, users must use a biometric security option, such as a fingerprint.

âLet Autofill securely save your address or payment information so you don’t have to re-enter it or make mistakes when delivering your important packages,â the Microsoft blog explains. “Your addresses will sync across devices and can be filled in automatically, including on your desktop devices using Microsoft Edge or the Microsoft Autofill extension on Google Chrome.”
Android and iOS support auto-filling forms on the web. A support document explains how to configure Microsoft Authenticator as an autofill provider.
The Chrome Web Store also has a Microsoft Autofill extension that supports addresses and payment information.
