Digital or Mobile Wallets
What is a digital or mobile wallet? A digital wallet, sometimes called an e-wallet, is a service that allows you to pay for things electronically, without using your physical card. It may also store a number of other items a traditional wallet would hold, such as a driver's license, gift cards, tickets for entertainment events, and transportation passes.
A mobile wallet is a type of digital wallet that's accessible through an app on a mobile device (usually a phone or wearable). You can use a mobile wallet to “tap to pay” when you're checking out of a store — a convenient alternative to paying with cash or carrying around a physical card.

Is it safe to use a mobile wallet? Absolutely. Digital wallets are well-protected against fraud and their security technology is constantly being updated to provide the most current protection.
Other debit card questions
How is a debit card different from a credit card? Debit cards allow HSBC customers to spend money by drawing on funds they have deposited in their account. Credit cards allow consumers to borrow money from the card issuer up to a certain limit in order to purchase items or withdraw cash.
How is a debit card different from an ATM card? You can use your debit card to get cash back (at participating merchants) or to buy something at a store. An ATM card only allows you to get money from your checking or savings account at an ATM.
Another primary difference between an HSBC debit and ATM card is that an HSBC debit card has a Mastercard® logo on its face. That means you can use our debit card wherever Mastercard® debit cards are accepted, for example, department stores, restaurants, or online.
What is chip-technology? A chip card is a standard debit card which contains an embedded microchip as well as a traditional magnetic stripe. The chip encrypts information to increase data security when making transactions at stores, terminals, or ATMs.
