Windows Phone 8 Basics - What's a Wallet PIN?

A Wallet PIN is a numeric password that you can set up to protect access to your Wallet. The PIN can also prevent unwanted NFC payments and protect your purchases in the Windows Phone Store.

Your Wallet PIN is different from your lock screen password. When you set up a Wallet PIN, be sure to choose something you'll remember—particularly if you don't think you'll use it very often.

Setting up a Wallet PIN is not required, but it is recommended. Here's how to do it:

In the App list, tap Wallet Wallet icon.
Tap More More icon, and then tap Settings+PIN.
Turn on the Wallet PIN switch Toggle switch, enter and confirm your new PIN (it must be at least 4 digits), and then tap Done.
If you'd like to require this PIN for purchases in the Windows Phone Store, select the Use Wallet PIN to protect music, app, and in-app purchases check box.
