Card Scanning on Phones: How Safe Is It?
Thanks to the advancement of technology, nowadays, we are using our smartphones to do plenty of things thus saving a lot of time. We can send and receive payments using our phones only. You have the option to store your credit card information inside an app in your smartphone and then pay using only your phone whenever it’s possible.
Scanning your card is certainly easier than keying in the numbers manually. You simply scan your credit card to enter card information and that’s it. As simple as that.
But while it is undoubtedly convenient, you have probably wondered how safe it is to scan your card via phone? One cannot help but be suspicious.
People are concerned about data security and according to what we’ve seen so far, their concern is entirely justified. Many consumers are still reluctant to use their smartphones to make payments and would not enter their card details. However, it is specifically because of such concerns that companies strive harder to make their apps safe for use and protect their users from any data theft.
Mobile Payment Method vs. Traditional Payment Method
The truth is, nothing can protect you from a theft 100%. But according to experts, you should be more concerned about using traditional methods of payments rather than mobile payments.
Mobile payments methods offered on the market use encryption to secure your data. That means your card account numbers are masked and no hacker can read them. It’s actually much more difficult for hackers to access your crdit card details in this way. You have no reason to worry because a coded version of your credit card information is used during the transaction.
Bear in mind that you should always use trusted payment providers because they do not store your credit card details.
