Google Opens Wallet To All Cards, Adds Remote Lock
Google today launched a new version of Google Wallet that works with all major credit cards. Previous versions worked only with a Citi MasterCard or Google Prepaid card. The new app also works with a remote lock feature that lets users remotely disable Wallet from the web, if their phone is lost or stolen. The lock feature prevents any transactions from being authorized from the locked device, and, if the phone is online, will remotely reset the Wallet app, clearing all sensitive Wallet data. To make the app work with all credit and debit cards, the service now partly cloud-based, storing card data on secure Google servers instead of in the secure element on the phone. The new version is available now from Google Play, and requires a compatible NFC-enabled Android phone.
