Digital wallets are mobile payment solutions that take advantage of wireless technology to interact with websites and other apps, as well as point-of-sale devices, like cash registers & similar card readers found at retail locations. Eliminating the need for a wallet full of cards that can easily be stolen, these smartphone apps take your card information and encrypt it, giving each one its own secure & unique code, meaning your actual numbers are never stored or shown.
