Wallet initially launched in just six countries, including the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. While the expansion still leaves much of the planet untouched, it makes Wallet considerably more commonplace and brings it to new continents.
As elsewhere, Wallet effectively merges Samsung’s Pay and Pass apps. You can use it to make payments with bank cards, of course, but it can also store content like IDs, boarding passes and digital car keys. On top of the usual data protection, the software stores the most sensitive data in “isolated” conditions to prevent hacks. It’s not much different than Apple’s equivalent in that regard, but that still makes it very helpful if you want a do-it-all wallet on your Galaxy phone.
