With summer in full swing, it’s time to take advantage of the warm weather. Many of the activities we try to “soak up” are swimming, barbecuing, tanning, or spending time on the lake. However, there are more than just activities to take advantage of. More and more financial institutions are adopting MOBILE WALLET into their list of features; take a few minutes to learn what it can do for you!
During the summer months, many of us travel or go to the beach—trying to pack as little as possible. With Mobile Wallet, you can leave your purse or wallet at home because you can use your phone to pay for gas, lunch, souvenirs, and whatever else you come across during your sun-filled days!
Mobile Wallet works on Apple, Android, and Samsung phones. Your debit or credit card, through your financial institution must also be compatible with Mobile Wallet. To get started, download Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Samsung Pay. Then, load your debit or credit card into your app (the app will notify you if your card isn’t compatible). From there, it’s simple to use; just follow the instructions on your app when you’re in the checkout.
You may be wondering, “is this really secure?” Mobile Wallet is actually MORE secure than using your physical debit or credit card for purchases because your card information is encrypted and it isn’t shared at the time of checkout! Furthermore, those pesky hackers can’t steal your card information by simply walking past you at the supermarket, because of encryption!
