Nowadays, we are so used to using all sorts of new features and devices that it’s almost impossible to imagine living without them. Take mobile payments, for example. If you forget to take your wallet or purse when you go out, you no longer have to spend the whole day borrowing money from work colleagues. Instead, you can use your phone to make electronic payments with ease, no matter where you are. Thanks to the latest technology, we might not even need wallets and purses at all in future. Perhaps just a chip will be enough to carry all your data – from personal photos to important documents – in digital format.
But before we look to the future, we should first ask ourselves what devices, software and systems are already popular for managing finances? And how can we ensure all these devices are used properly in a way that guarantees online security?
