Not sure if purchasing via Google Pay or Samsung Pay is safe? Pay Guard Mobile helps protect your online transactions from data and identity theft when using browsers or digital wallets on your Android tablet or phone.

Are Mobile Payments Secure? What's the Risk?

Mobile payments are similar to using your debit or credit card, but instead of a physical card, you can use your mobile device to pay your bills. This method can be as secure, but there are still some risks to be aware of:

  • Security threats - Cybercriminals can install malware or hack into your phone and steal your payment information.
  • Unauthorized transactions - If your phone is lost or stolen, someone can access your payment information and make purchases.
  • Scams and phishing - Scammers may pose as someone you know and trick you into giving them sensitive information.
  • Technical problems - electronic payments sometimes can experience problems like outage and compatiblity issues.
