Samsung Wallet is bringing a new level of everyday convenience to mobile devices with a totally safe and secure environment for storing digital keys, cards and more
Samsung, the South Korean tech giant, on Thursday, introduced a new platform – Samsung Wallet to help users organise digital keys, boarding passes, identification cards and more in one application.
The company said to easily monitor crypto-currencies and SmartThings to unlock doors, Samsung Wallet is protected by defence-grade security from Samsung Knox and takes advantage of an open Galaxy ecosystem by integrating with Samsung Block-chain Wallet.
“Samsung Wallet is bringing a new level of everyday convenience to mobile devices with a totally safe and secure environment for storing digital keys, cards and more,” Jeanie Han, EVP and Head of Digital Life, MX Business at Samsung Electronics, said in a statement.
“As part of our on-going commitment to open ecosystems, we will continue to expand on the capabilities of Samsung Wallet by working closely with our trusted partners and developers,” Han added.
To users, Samsung gives a refined interface and one-swipe access to their payment cards, loyalty and membership cards and more.
To enable users to quickly and easily log into apps and services, it also incorporates the functionality of Samsung Pass which securely stores passwords.
The company said that later this year, Samsung Wallet will also begin to support official IDs, such as mobile driver’s licences and student IDs.
