Is Google Wallet Safe to Use?

Last week we used Google Wallet to send money to one of our writers. Everything seemed to work just fine. Today, however, they asked us to verify our identity for “security reasons.” They wanted our full social security number and a photo ID.  We thought this was suspicious, so we contacted Google for an explanation. They told us: “Rest assured that Google is committed to preserving the security of your information, which will never be shared except under the very limited circumstances described in our Privacy Policy.”

They did not give any specific reason, or cite any law, why they now require a photo ID.  Under these circumstances, we have decided not to use Google Wallet.

If you use Google Wallet, please let us know what you think about their new identity verification process.
