Google Wallet’s tap-to-pay for Wear OS may soon include PIN authentication

Google Wallet Wear OS PIN

Google is reportedly introducing a PIN code requirement for tap-to-pay transactions on Wear OS devices, similar to the authentication process on Android phones. Some users have reported this change, although it is not yet available for all Wear OS users.

The new change to Google Wallet aims to improve security, but it could complicate the charge process on smartwatches. Wear OS is known for its high security, often asking for a PIN if the device is not firmly on the wrist. Introducing a mandatory PIN entry before payments suggests that Google may have concerns about the current security of Wear OS.

According to 9to5Google, users need to open the Google Wallet app before tapping to make a payment to avoid failed transactions if the change is implemented.

Google recently updated its security for phone payments, requiring users to verify their identity before making a payment. For those who find the new phone security measures inconvenient, Wear OS was an easier option. However, entering a PIN on a small screen is less convenient than using a fingerprint.
