Gives users secure control of their digital wallet
DALLAS, Jan. 29, 2013 – NuWallet, Inc., a mobile personal information management and on-line payment application provider, announced the NuWallet app will be pre-loaded on all Android tablets by Rapids Wireless Corporation.
The NuWallet app serves as a digital wallet for mobile devices providing users complete privacy and security of their personal information, while also giving consumers flexibility in their on-line payment options – all in a simple-to-use and easy-to-manage application.
“Rapids Wireless was looking for a unique app that would securely protect the user’s personal information,” said David Thompson , CEO of Rapids Wireless. He further stated “tablets are the consumer’s device of choice for accessing and storing personal information and quickly becoming the ‘de-facto’ device for shopping over the Internet. Having NuWallet pre-loaded on all of our tablets re-enforces the need to provide secure, useful applications for our customers.”
In a feature called “MyNotes“, the NuWallet app securely stores sensitive information such as passwords; banking/investment/payment account numbers; health & prescription data; insurance information; airline and hotel loyalty programs; car information, etc. “By storing personal information within the NuWallet app, it returns control of information security to the owner,” said George Hendrix , President of NuWallet. “This technology all but eliminates the ability for a hacker to gain access to the user’s personal information which is encrypted and can only be accessed by entering the user’s unique security PIN. Having NuWallet pre-loaded on Rapid Wireless’ tablets confirms the growing importance of protecting the mobile user’s personal information,” Hendrix added.
As tablets become more ubiquitous as the standard platform for on-line shopping, Internet-based merchants can now integrate NuWallet’s technology to enable their customers a quick, single-tap check-out for mobile, on-line commerce transactions. The consumer has the ability to select which payment instrument they wish to use (i.e. debit card, credit card, merchant card, etc.) at the moment of check-out. This greatly simplifies the on-line mobile payment process and enables the purchase to be completed in just a few seconds.
Not only is the NuWallet app pre-loaded on the Rapids Wireless tablet, it is also available for free at Apple’s App Store and at Google Play for iPhone or Android mobile devices.
NuWallet is a patent-pending technology of NuWallet, Inc. and was founded by a team of industry veterans with a vast amount of experience in credit card processing; merchant services; banking and cash management, and the Internet-security industry.
