How to Use Your Digital Wallet
Accessing your digital wallet from your phone involves unlocking your phone. If you set up two-step authentication, unlocking your phone will require a password/passcode and often a biometric factor, such as fingerprint or face ID, as an extra layer of security.
There are other steps you can take to help prevent digital wallet fraud if your phone or device gets lost or stolen. If you contact First Eagle, you can request to put a freeze on the cards in your digital wallet, just like you would for physical cards, or you can do it yourself in Online or Mobile Banking.
Shopping online with your digital wallet is quick and seamless. Once you’ve added items to your cart and you’re ready to check out, see if your digital wallet logo is a payment option. If so, click on it to complete your transaction; no need to enter in the card information.
In-Store Purchases – At the Check-Out
Make sure the card terminal has near-field communication (NFC), which signals communication between your phone and the reader so your payment data can be transmitted. You’ll know if the card reader has NFC if you see a horizontal Wi-Fi symbol, which verifies contactless functionality. You can also look for your digital wallet app logo.
Hold your phone with the back facing close to the reader; your digital wallet app should automatically open to initiate and complete the transaction. Your phone may prompt you to unlock your phone (either with password or fingerprint).
When you purchase something within an app, that simply means you buy content, services or additional features while using an application on a device such as a tablet or smart phone. This kind of purchase could include anything from mobile games to food delivery services.
Letting go of your physical wallet is a big decision to make. Make the leap to a digital wallet and enjoy the convenience of contactless payments.
