I pay various things online with my credit card. In order to save the time of taking out my wallet and typing the number to the field, I have two options:
- Store the credit card number with the service
- Store the credit card number in my password manager
First is bad if a service gets compromised. The second is bad if my machine should be compromised, but then I have larger problems than just the credit card.
I am curious about the following: If I decide not to let stores save my credit card information but instead store it in my password manager, how does liability change? I presume that the first option is just fine with the credit card issuer since that is common practise. But what about the second one? I think that it would be more secure, but does the company see it the same?
I will also contact the company but I am not confident that I will get a straight answer, especially since they block my password manager in their online banking and advise to not store passwords on the computer at all.
