  • Google has announced a small but handy change to the Play Store’s biometric verification feature for purchases.
  • You’ll no longer be required to enter your account password when setting up the feature for the first time.

Google has offered biometric support for the Play Store for almost 10 years now, allowing you to use your fingerprint, face, or another form of biometrics to approve purchases. Fortunately, the company is making a tweak to this functionality in the name of convenience.

Google sent an email to users (including ourselves) confirming that you won’t need to enter your Google account password after first setting up biometric verification for purchases on the Play Store.
