Make Purchases Easier With Softcard ™
I recently heard about Softcard ™ from Influence Central and didn’t really know what it was. I thought it might be a gift card or something like that, but after doing the research and finding out it’s a great way to have all of you cards on your phone and not have to worry about them being lost out of your wallet or purse, I was interested. I had to do some research and see if it was safe, though – with all of the cyber-attacks in today’s world, having my credit card information with me on my phone kind of made me worried. I went onto the Verizon site and found the info I was looking for:
The Softcard app is safer than your existing physical wallet. Your cards still have the same fraud and lost/stolen safeguards, plus extra layers of protection:
◊PIN – You select a unique PIN and enter it each time you open the Softcard app.
◊Remote Wallet Lock – If your phone is lost or stolen, you can freeze your Softcard app with one phone call or web entry. That s easier and faster than calling the issuing bank from every card in your physical wallet.
◊Secure Element – Sensitive payment information is stored on a special chip in your phone called the Secure Element. The Secure Element is isolated from your phone s main hardware and operating system. It s designed to allow access only to authorized programs such as the Softcard app.
◊Protective ID – A unique transaction ID is sent with each payment transaction, making it more difficult to counterfeit your card.
◊Personal Privacy – We believe your privacy matters. What you buy is between you and the merchants you patronize.
That pretty much answered my questions. I cannot wait to continue using this and not have to worry about remembering my card and not having to worry about someone else using my info. I can now leave my card at home and still be able to make purchases safe & securely with Softcard ™!! I really hope in the future they will allow us to add more cards that aren’t available on the app, yet.
I also love their mascot. His name is “Tappy” he can explain the app more in the video below. What a great guy to have working for me, to make my life easier, and also keep my info safe! Find out more about him here:
