Is mobile more secure than credit cards
Is Mobile More Secure than Credit Cards?

  • Pros:

    • NFC: Secure chip, dual identification

    • Magnetic stripes cannot be force-read (street device) if cards are not present

  • Cons:

    • NFC: Can the radio and/or the app(s) be hacked?

    • NFC: Despite the availability map, many locations have “contactless payment” disabled

    • What if you lose or break your device (or it is stolen)?

      • Security apps, remote wipe of device

      • Card management through computers/Web

Other considerations
Other Considerations

  • Resource Management

    • How many different places do you want to store money? (What if you suddenly need it all in one place?)

    • How much room on your device do you want to allocate to wallet apps and loyalty apps?

      • How many of these apps come pre-loaded as “carrier bloatware”?

    • What if you don’t have a data plan (or a 3G/4G chip)?

  • Back End Security

    • Your financial information is only as secure as the systems through which it is sent
