Thanks for your response @hugo!
I’m sometimes a little concerned about the ease of conducting a contactless transaction, so I guess that’s why I raised that point of fraudulent activity.
A scenario in which I see this being useful would be if I have a lot of transactions on a given day, and I’m certain that I have only used a PIN . If I then see a contactless transaction in my feed (when I’m checking my expenditure at the end of the day) it would allow me to identify that someone/something has used my card without my permission. Granted, this is probably a little extreme, but I do think there’s some value in knowing if a transaction is contactless.
There’s a nice article here which outlines an industrial approach/view to contactless payments, which I guess I have become accustomed. In short, it says: “[contactless payments] show up on your bank statement with the universal contactless wave symbol aside”.
I wonder if anyone else has any thoughts?
