Samsung’s Pay and Pass apps were merged into a single app named Samsung Wallet earlier this year.

The South Korean manufacturer says Knox is integrated with Samsung Wallet, which improves the security of the application by adding layers of encryption and biometric elements such as fingerprint recognition. Knox also uses an integrated chip present on compatible Galaxy smartphones to prevent physical and digital hacking.
