A security firm found vulnerabilities  for Google Wallet. One lets hackers bypass PIN protection if you have a rooted phone. The other one does the same thing but on a non rooted device.  Those exploits let anyone let an unauthorized user will be able to access a user’s prepaid funds without needing to know the Google Wallet pin.  Google said The  Wallet is safe and “offers advantages over the plastic cards and folded wallets in use today.” Google went on to say “rooting your phone will cause your Google Wallet data to be automatically wiped from the device,” “We strongly encourage anyone who loses or wants to sell their phone to call Google Wallet support toll-free at 855-492-5538 to disable the prepaid card,” Google said in a statement. “We are currently working on an automated fix as well that will be available soon. We also advise all Wallet users to set up a screen lock as an additional layer of protection for their phone.”
