Conclusion

Whether you choose Samsung Pay or Google Pay it basically depends on the device that you use and your personal preferences. Both Google Pay and Samsung Pay use the same technologies to ensure the security of your private or financial information.

Samsung Pay’s Security

Samsung claims to be the only company in the world to offer kernel protection. Offering multi-layered security, it safely defends your most sensitive information from malware, viruses and malicious threats. An attacker that can get past the Linux kernel defenses would not be allowed to modify the kernel executable code. This greatly reduces the impact of kernel attacks on the whole system.

A lot of Samsung tablets, devices, and wearables are designed with Knox protection platform built into their architecture. Through constant monitoring, Samsung Knox ensures your card information is encrypted in a separate and secure data storage space at all times. This safeguards the information of more than 1 billion Samsung consumers and business devices.

Knox (the high level mobile security platform) encrypts your data so well that it can not be exposed or even vulnerable. Even in the event of robbery or loss. Knox 3.3 which was released in 2019, added Knox Dual Data-at-Rest (DAR). In this latest release the data will remain encrypted even though your device might be powered off and won’t be decrypted unless you choose to completely unlock it.

Some of the government organizations that want very high levels of protection use Knox security.
