According to Stiftung Warentest, the Samsung Pay app demands too many rights

Since the end of October Samsung Pay is in Germany started . But should you also use the service? If Stiftung Warentest has its way, I'd rather not.

The Samsung Pay app should be used with caution. You can expect up to four Schufa entries when using the payment service. But that's not the only evil.

The offer can be used with almost any current account, Samsung works with Solarisbank for this. So you have to become a customer there too. You will then also get the appropriate Schufa entries. That is questionable.

Now the Stiftung Warentest has also criticized the excessive number of rights that the app requires. Samsung Pay can also access other applications and intervene deeply in the operating system.

In the worst case, the app could even install other apps on the smartphone without the user's knowledge, delete data from other programs or switch off other apps. The app also has access to the smartphone's contacts and SMS reception, can switch WiFi networks unnoticed and read out the cell phone's memory.

Everything doesn't read so nicely, especially in terms of data protection law, there seems to be a lot of trouble here. Samsung should urgently make improvements here so that Samsung Pay does not experience problems.
