What are Digital Wallets?
Much like a physical wallet, a digital wallet is a single place to store your credit and debit cards. The main difference is that a digital wallet lives on your smart device in the form of an app. Simply add a card to the app and you can use your device to make payments online, in-app and in-person.
Where can I use my Digital Wallet?
Once you have downloaded your card into your digital wallet, you can use it in many ways.
1. Participating merchants - Use your digital wallet where you see the contactless symbol, as well as hold your mobile device over the terminal symbol.
2. Online - When shopping online, some websites allow you to select your digital wallet as your payment option instead of having to enter your credit or debit card information each time you make a purchase.
3. In Apps— Use your digital wallet as a payment method.

How do Digital Wallets keep my payment information secure?
The Digital Wallet providers do not store or have access to your full account number as they are only provided a unique one-time passcode, known as a token, to provide to the merchant to complete the transaction. This reduces the risk of your payment data being stored or compromised because only the token is passed on and your payment card information is never shared with the merchant. Additionally, you will be required to authenticate yourself before the transaction can be processed. Depending on your device type, the authentication step may be completed using your fingerprint, facial recognition, passcode or PIN. The last four digits of your card number is displayed on the card image within the wallet for the purpose of helping you manage your card(s).
What happens when I get a new phone or replace an old device?
Be sure to delete your cards from your Wallet before exchanging or selling your old phone or device. You will then need to register your cards again the in the desired wallet. If your device has not been backed up or your information cannot be saved from your prior device, you will need to complete the registration process for each card again.
How do I make sure my Digital Wallet is locked when I'm not using my phone?
Digital Wallets are automatically locked when your device is locked. You will also need to provide a PIN, Fingerprint/Touch ID or Face ID to authorize a purchase.
