Must-Have Features for Secure Digital Wallet App Development
To make your digital wallet secure, our highly skilled developers build an app with security features. From tokenization, QR technology, Biometric authorization, sanding box, and cloud-based services, all features play an important role in making your digital wallet safe and your online payment process efficient.
#1 - Tokenization
When you swipe a physical card at the store, they log the card’s information in their system. This process can often increase the risk of data breaches. Thanks to the digital wallet’s feature - Tokenization, you don’t have to provide your personal information to anyone.
Paying with an electronic wallet will generate a unique, single-use payment code. This “token” code is enough for immediate transactions.
Tokenzations adds a layer of security to your payments and makes your data more difficult to track & theft.
#2 - QR-Enabled Technology
Prominent E-wallets such as Apple Pay use QR technology to let users make fast, secure and efficient transactions. It reduces the requirements for long card numbers or other payment details, making the process more convenient & efficient. In addition, the wallet integrated with the QR feature ensures the security of transactions.
#3 - Cloud-Based Technology
Quick transactions are possible now in a secure way thanks to cloud-based technology such as POS (Point of Sale). It gives customers complete capabilities to convert their smartphones into digital wallets.
For instance, payment with a simple tap at POS terminals also eases the transaction process for vendors, issuers and buyers.
#4 - Easy Accessibility from Anywhere
If you have lost your smartphone, you don’t need to be worried about your digital wallet. Thanks to the easy accessibility from anywhere, you can prevent your data from being stolen. You just need to log in to another phone and freeze your digital wallet, preventing new transactions.
#5 - Biometrics Authorization
Believe it or not, securing your electronic purse is far easier than your physical wallet. Why?
A digital wallet allows you to secure your data & track your device more efficiently.
Electronic wallets offer several tools to secure transactions, from passcodes to biometric verifications. With the aid of fingerprints or Face ID, it is very difficult for hackers to access users’ information.
The electronic purse is also safe & secure from prying eyes as it doesn’t display users’ full account numbers anywhere.
VLink promises to deliver eWallet apps integrated with these features, such as biometric authorization, tokenization, Sandboxing, QR scanning, etc.

#4 - APIs
