Google even claims that the app is so secure that it gives the user all the security features that are present in the Android phone.
However, it needs to be said that there are some expectations that the users will have to meet in order to download Google Wallet. Their phone will have to run at least the 5.2 version of Android. Of course, this is more like a formal demand since most probably everyone has at least Android 10 nowadays. Users will also need to have a Google account, which, again, represents nothing complicated to achieve. You can make one in just a few minutes at no cost. Last but not least, those willing to get their hands on the Google Wallet app will also need a valid US phone number.
