    Is Google Wallet secure?

    Yesmore secure than magnetic stripes! It replaces actual data on the physical card (i.e. the credit card number) with virtual data, or a secure token from VISA.

The information is useless without your device and the devices secure log-in information (i.e. your phones PIN). If a large retailers database is hacked, this principle still applies: the token will be useless without the phone and its user.
