Key Characteristics & Benefits

With an early priority date of 2007, the disclosed patent broadly covers secure mobile payments, using Near Field Communications (NFC) technology to link mobile communications devices with contactless payment systems. The patent enables users to conduct payment transactions at a retail merchant POS, access banking services, and store payment or banking information. Importantly, the invention integrates a range of security features to guard against the risks inherent in data transmissions between mobile communications devices and a management server. In several key embodiments, sensitive or confidential information is securely stored on a remote server using PCI guidelines rather than on the mobile device itself, ensuring that such data will never be compromised due to theft or loss of the device. It further employs unique WalletIDs, SiteKeys, user-defined PINs, and tokens to specify access and privileges for different services and prevent fraudulent or accidental purchases. Additional features allow users to remotely lock or disable the device in real time, or shut down payment applications after a designated period of inactivity.
