Salal Credit Union

Mobile Wallet Options for Salal Members

Your phone already connects you to the world. Now it can connect you to your money in a whole new way.

Mobile Wallets offer a simple, seamless, and safe way to make purchases.

In a nutshell, a mobile wallet allows you to carry your Salal credit and debit cards in a digital format and use them from your mobile device. You simply add your Salal card to the wallet of your choice, determined by the type of mobile device you own—Apple Pay®, Samsung Pay, or Google Pay™. Once installed and verified, you can leave the plastic at home and use your mobile wallet at participating retail stores, while shopping online, and within mobile apps.

This payment method is not only faster than using a chipped card, it also provides additional layers of security. Your purchases will continued to be monitored by FICO® Falcon® Fraud Manager and will remain covered by the Visa Zero Liability Policy.

How secure are mobile wallets?

Security is a big concern to us, and we are confident that each of the mobile wallets mentioned on this page are safe and reliable. They all use encryption and tokenization to protect your personal and financial information. Your Salal credit and debit account numbers are never shared with merchants or retailers and are not stored on your device. Instead, that information is encrypted and turned into a different, random number—a token—for each transaction. Even within your app, your full card number is never shown. Lastly, mobile wallets allow you to remotely lock or erase your accounts if your device is lost or stolen.
