UGO Wallet, the free app that is available from BlackBerry World and Google Play allows users to replicate their 'wallet' experience with digital 'credit cards'. According to UGO, the UGO wallet is available for use with eligible TD Credit Cards and PC Financial MasterCard credit cards whereby smartphone users with the UGO app can make purchases wherever Visa payWave* and MasterCard® PayPassTM are available. The wallet also incorporates 'bonus card' functionality, incorporating PC Plus point collection for selected purchases at participating stores.
According to UGO, the UGO wallet is as secure as paying with a physical credit card and users can boost the security levels on their UGO app by setting additional passwords and PINs on 'cards' stored in the UGO wallet. To activate the service, users will need a Near Field Communication (NFC)-enabled SIM card in eligible BlackBerry 10 and Android smartphone devices as well as other devices which will be included in the service in future. The UGO Wallet is available for customers of all three major Canadian operators.
