CARDHOLDERS OR USERS Q&As
Will my credit card details be safe?
Yes, absolutely. We encrypt the data of your card and tokenize it so that your confidential information is transmitted safely and securely in the networks, which prevents someone from stealing your information.
How is my Voice secured through biometric technolgy?
Your voice is a digital imprint. Biometrics provide a fully reliable security read as each person’s throat, paddle and vocal cords are singularly unique from anyone else’s, as they shape the air that is expelled from the lungs and the mouth when a person speaks. Starting with the raw audio and the waveform generated when one speaks, elements that are beyond the human audible range, a person’s biometric voice read system processes the audio waveform to extract key characteristics that are unique to each individual.
Could someone steal my voice from a recording and use it to authorize a fraudulent payment?
No. In the event that someone steals a recording in which you pronounce your payment authorization phrase (ie. “I Approve this Payment …”) it will not be sufficient as the perpetrator will have to also pronounce the code numbers that are randomly presented to him/her to authenticate the payment at once. With this, an error will occur which denies them the opportunity to make a fraudulant payment.
How can one be sure that the message comes from the authentic bank or merchant and not from a fraudulent number?
The bank, the payment processor, and its affiliated businesses can send payment requests via WhatsAPP® to their clients or customers, who in turn will be able to verify that they come from an authentic and reliable source within the same application, or within the WhatsAPP® chat page that includes the official logo of the Bank or PSP and a check mark, as this, ** Poner la palomita de WhatsAppindicating that it is an official verified corporate number. The cardholder may verify it directly in WhatsAPP, before he or she may decide to execute the payment.
How can I protect my mobile phone from being hacked or attacked by a virus that could jeopardize my credit/debit card information and my payments through WhatsAPP®?
We recommend using the Lookout® APP subscription Application that is available for IOS and Android, as it will help you prevent an intruder from trying to enter your phone or smartphone and harm you.
Take into account that the intruder will not be able to access your WhatsAPP® messages, as they are encrypted. The same applies for your card data, since it is not stored on your phone and it has already been encrypted, tokenized and securely stored in the Cloud, away from your cell phone or smartphone.
Even if the intruder was to gain access to the content of your WhatsAPP® account, he/she would be unable to utilize your payment authorization recordings or messages, since verification numbers are randomly selected, and your credit card would not be registered or stored in your cell phone or smartphone.

Yes, if a payment with the credit or debit card you provided is rejected, SocialCashier will provide you with alternative enrollment payment options, as required.
