What is a digital wallet?
A digital wallet (or an e-wallet) means an electronic wallet where you can digitally store your money. It often comes in the form of an application that can be installed on your phone.
Digital wallets allow you to store your payment information in one place, thus eliminating the necessity of carrying your physical wallet, bank cards, and cash with you. You may use a digital wallet to pay for online and in-store purchases.
In a nutshell, you can store all your financial information in an e-wallet: credit and debit cards, or bank account information.
Some digital wallets also allow you to store:
- Different kinds of tickets (plane, transit, events)
- Hotel reservations
- Loyalty cards
- ID cards
Are digital wallets safe?
Digital wallets use payment tokenization. That is one of the most secure payment methods available. It means your bank card number is substituted with a token, which is a randomly generated number.
What adds to the security of the digital wallet is that it essentially sits within your passcode-protected mobile device and requires your fingerprint or other authentication when making a payment.
