Google Wallet preps to virtualize US Passports

Published

Google Wallet

Google Wallet will soon allow US residents to store their Passports. The company is exploring ways to end the need for physical documents via Google Wallet. The next stop seems to be the passports department, which could be virtualized in the future.

X tipster AssembleDebug discovered that Google Wallet is testing a feature to add Passports in the US. The upcoming function will likely allow you to “create an ID pass with your passport.” However, the feature’s availability may be limited to the United States only.

Google Wallet could create an ID pass for a passport. It would allow users to verify their “identity for domestic flights at select airline security checkpoints or online purchases.” It will be sharable for verification with authorities through NFC or QR code scanning functionality.

Passports could be stored in Google Wallet but users should keep their physical copy. Such kind of document is usually required when you travel abroad. Virtualizing documents is OK but it may create regulatory hurdles given the respective country’s laws and acceptance.

Samsung Wallet is also filled with countless features for Galaxy consumers. It also has local payments support such as UPI in India, which offers ease of access. While Samsung Wallet is unsharable, Galaxy users can enjoy the Google Wallet anytime they want.
