The Samsung Wallet service was announced four months ago. It is currently available in eight countries: China, France, Germany, Italy, Korea, Spain, the U.K., and the U.S. Now, Samsung has announced that it will expand Samsung Wallet to thirteen new countries before the end of this year.

Samsung Wallet will be launched in Bahrain, Denmark, Finland, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Norway, Oman, Qatar, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Vietnam, and UAE in 2022. Samsung Wallet allows users to store credit cards, debit cards, membership cards, gift cards, digital keys, travel boarding passes, driver’s licenses, ID cards, and even blockchain wallets. Earlier, Samsung had two apps—Samsung Pass and Samsung Pay—to fulfill even fewer features.

The South Korean firm says that Samsung Wallet is extremely secure, thanks to Samsung Knox. The app is protected by the user’s biometrics, such as a fingerprint. It stores sensitive information in an isolated environment (a separate part of a processor) inside a smartphone, so it’s also usually safe from physical hacking attempts.

Jeanie Han, EVP and Head of the Digital Life Team at Samsung MX, said, “Samsung Wallet takes everyday convenience to the next level, and we have worked closely with our trusted partners and developers to enrich our Wallet experience. We are focused on bringing the platform to as many markets as possible, as soon as possible, so more Samsung Galaxy users have the opportunity to reap the benefits of the digital wallet.
