How safe is Samsung Pass/Wallet as a password manager?

I use Samsung Wallet as a way to pay at stores through NFC, as well as to automatically put in my debit card information and shipping address on applications. I'm just wondering how safe Samsung Pass/Wallet is, and to know whether I should use it or opt for a different service.

Thanks in advance!

I use Samsung Pass. I have Microsoft Authenticator as a backup. You should always have some redundancy for your critical apps. (2 browsers, 2 pay apps, 2 password managers) Of course, ymmv.

I haven't ihad any issues so far. I've been using it longer than a year.

Thanks! Do you use it to save log in information for apps, or do you use it for websites, too?

I've been with Samsung since 2010 and never had any issues using it. I've also used Microsoft and didn't like that one as much. It stores my passwords, credit cards, and addresses.

Thank you! I don't use any Microsoft applications or services, so I was debating on either keeping private information like that on Samsung, Google (since I use it the most), or a good, premium password manager.

I know that the issue with non-premium password manager is that it uses our information for whatever reason, but I trust their encryption and don't have reason to fear for breaches if I use Samsung Wallet or Google's version of it.

If you use a wallet then the CCP has your information period!

It's okay, I don't really care about it.

Thank you for the response and tip, that's really smart to do!

What browsers do you use, if you don't mind me asking?
