Microsoft Edge is getting “Wallet” feature on Windows 11 & Windows 10
Microsoft Edge’s forthcoming feature called ‘Wallet’ is an extremely convenient method to secure your physical card online and automatically find offers that are similar to yours.
When you make a transaction through Microsoft Edge when you encounter the field for entering the credit card’s numbers or other credentials such as The CVV Microsoft may ask whether you would prefer to use a save card instead. It’s always been an option within the Edge browser however, it’s becoming more convenient with the addition of a separate page “Wallet”.
The Edge Wallet feature is accessible to users who are a select group who reside in certain areas of the United States and Microsoft seems to be testing it A/B. That is, even the moment you download and launch Edge Canary, you won’t be allowed to use the Wallet page unless you’re a part of in Microsoft’s A/B closed system that has been a shady testing platform.
Edge’s Wallet feature is similar to the browser’s feature that stores your credit card, but it doesn’t display your actual account details. It’s worth noting that Microsoft does not work with credit card companies or sharing your information with a third party however, it plans to utilize Bing’s Rebate feature to automatically suggest coupons.
Here are some benefits from the use of Microsoft Edge Wallet:
- With Wallet you can save more than $50 per year.
- Edge will automatically apply coupons at checkout, based on the detection of the card and the vendor.
- You can get additional cashback on purchases you make with Bing Rebates.
- You can find deals that are personalized on products that appeal to you the most.
To begin you must press the icon to add an account.
