Payments Source Names Abineâs Blur Service As Key To Secure Mobile Payments




Tuesday August 23rd, 2016 “ BOSTON – Abine, the online privacy company, had its new Blur password, payments and privacy service named, in additional to Apple Pay, as a key new secure way to pay online. Unlike Apple Pay, however, Abines Blur solution works at 96% of all online merchants “ all across the world.

Payments Source said:

œApple Pay popularized the concept of tokenization “ creating one-time codes for merchants to validate payment cards so consumers don–t have to share sensitive, valuable account information. But Apple Pay works only in stores or apps right now.

For consumers who remain rightly uneasy about typing their card information into a web browser, several startups are offering tokenization services. These fintechs are partnering with banks to obtain the real bank and card information that they obfuscate online.

If adopted widely, tokenization could limit the risk of major data breaches. Malware trying to steal information from online shopping sessions wouldnt work and merchants like Target and Home Depot would not receive card data, let alone store it, so hackers would have to go elsewhere.

These efforts share a noble goal: to help secure and shield consumers as they shop online. Like most security and privacy initiatives, theyre a partial answer and not for everyone. It will be interesting to see whether consumers gravitate to these options, or continue to fling their credit card data around online, keeping their fingers crossed.”

The Blur App for ios and Android phones enables anyone to create tough-to-crack passwords, spam-free email addresses, and private virtual credit cards through their default browser and even from inside their favorite mobile Apps. For example, consumers can use their mobile phones to get secure wallet payments directly inside of most popular Apps such as Uber, DropBox, Facebook, Amazon, Flipboard, WhatsApp, Minecraft and many more.
