Study: Google Wallet keeps too much unguarded data

Google Wallet credit card data too accessible

Research firm ViaForensics has performed a study on a rooted smartphone with Google Wallet preloaded and concluded that the software doesn't encrypt sensitive payment card information. This includes the last four digits of a credit card number, balance, credit limit, expiration date, transactions and other sensitive information. The data is unencrypted and stored in SQLite databases.
