Touch n Go Digital Rumoured To Be Preparing TapSecure Authentication Feature For eWallet

TNG eWallet Visa Card

Touch n Go Digital (TNGD) is reportedly working on a new security feature for its eWallet, known as TapSecure. As with such measures, the security feature is expected to act as an extra layer of authentication, to which users will be asked to go through a one-tap approval function, before being able to conduct a transaction safely and securely.

Evidence of TapSecure’s existence was brought to light to us via local Twitter user Dev (@tcp_asdf). In addition to the security feature, Dev also says that TNGD has also updated the monthly transferable limit on the eWallet to RM1000. Based on the official TNGD support page, that quota is applicable to users on the Pro and two Premium tiers. Lite tier users do not have access to this transferable function. Further, if you reload the amount via credit card, the first RM1000 will allegedly not be charged an administrative fee, while any amount beyond that initial amount will see users charged a 1% fee.

Beyond the TapSecure, there’s also a whole section dedicated to the Transferable Balance limits of TNGD’s eWallet, which you can read in the second source link. Do note, however, that two of the scenarios listed here talks about Transferable and Non-Transferable Balances. On the subject of eWallet tiering: if you are unsure as to which tier your account currently belongs in, you can simply check it by accessing your profile inside the official Touch n Go eWallet app. Your status should be visible on the “My Tier” tab.

Oddly enough, Dev says that the TapSecure is expected to go into effect by 23 March, but quick look on TNG’s support page says that the feature was introduced two days ago. We’ve reached out to TNGD regarding this matter but at the time of writing, we’ve still not gotten an official response from the company.
