We've had our fair share of experience with Google Wallet since it launched several months ago, and now that it's been updated to include all major credit and debit cards, it's time to once again address the most important question of all: is it safe? As it turns out, Google Wallet is really, really safe. You've got several ways to lock down your account, and starting today, you've also got a remote shutdown option too.
