Samsung Wallet users have the ability to store and use digital payment cards, loyalty cards, membership and ID cards, digital keys, boarding passes, and other credentials on their compatible Galaxy smartphones.

Then the service became available in Bahrain, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Kazakhstan, Korea, Kuwait, Norway, Oman, Qatar, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Vietnam, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Owners of Galaxy smartphones with Android 9 Pie software or later can upgrade to Samsung Wallet from Samsung Pay, Samsung Pass, or via the Galaxy Store online store.

Samsung Wallet securely stores passwords and allows users to quickly log in to applications and services. This product also helps clients track their digital asset portfolio.

Using Samsung Wallet, customers can check the value of cryptocurrencies on various exchanges. Users can easily add the digital house and car keys, but only for selected BMW, Genesis, and Hyundai models. The company intends to expand cooperation with car manufacturers.

Samsung Wallet supports digital boarding passes for services provided by Korean Air.

Digital wallet security features include fingerprint recognition and encryption, which help protect sensitive user data. Main confidential items in Samsung Wallet are stored in an isolated environment.
