The other day we saw that Android Pay began their march in the United States and that a major concern was the security of Google. they have learned from experience with Google Wallet where they never do a really fine job and this time they have taken seriously. The proof of that? Which will be compulsory to set up a screen lock on the phone with us to go to pay.

If you have not set a PIN, an unlock pattern, a registered face or fingerprint, will be impossible Pay a transaction with Android , which makes sense when you consider that we have nothing someone who could take us try to make a mobile purchase very easily

adding a little security to the mobile payments

A much needed breakthrough also “force” all users to make a more secure mobile. I admit: until I had no android wear or phone with fingerprint sensor I have not bothered to put a pattern or PIN to unlock it. It seems slow to make arrangements that made in seconds.

important step and very necessary to be taken Android Pay a little seriously. Still, I recently saw that not all security options were quite effective and that, for example, los release patterns were fairly predictable .
