FBI offers tips for using mobile wallets
Newport News Times
The Oregon FBI has issued a list of tips to help people build a digital defense when using mobile wallets.
Mobile wallets can make one’s life easier, whether at a store, restaurant or even just trying to pay for parking. People simply load their credit or debit card number or bank account information into the digital wallet on their phone, smartwatch or tablet. If they see a reader device that is compatible with their mobile wallet app, they just tap or wave the device, and the transaction goes through. In that scenario, people are using Near Field Communication technology.
