How safe and secure is it to do this over the phone?
Not safe at all, use a prepaid visa card to buy my apps. No risk other than they might take the whole 20 bux out.
oh, that's a good idea, had not thought of that.
i also use a prepaid credit card. makes me feel better. and i cant go crazy buying apps, because i only have $20 to get on apps at any time
The only party who gets access to your credit card is Google. Individual vendors do not take payment directly from you. It is perfectly safe.
I have not had any problems with using my card through google for apps.
it's not safe if a hacker were to get a virus on your phone.
I don't think it's any more risky than using any other automated service with your phone. I mean, if your bank allows you to check your accounts using your phone, then it's essentially the same thing. It's actually worse, since your bank probably would require you to input your account number and your PIN, which google doesn't need.
I don't think it's too much of a risk, but ya know, using a prepaid CC might not be a bad idea. The only problem is that I'd probably reload it using my phone, if I it was an option.
I trust them. My bank would inform me of any strange activity anyway, they always do.
I trust it 100% because as stated before it goes directly to google. However, no one's information is 100% safe but if a hacker wanted your information I don't think there's much in the way we can do to stop them.
Its as safe as PayPal. And I have Mobil Defense if my phone gets lost or stolen.
It's a heck of a lot safer than using your card at a restaurant.
