Add credit card by using device camera

Recently, I saw a password manager which can add credit card or secure note (Image recognition or OCR) by taking a picture of the item. I don’t know if this is easy or difficult to develop.

I had to reread the OP post,

But adding a photo for credit cards I could see as a future possibility, but for the notes, that’s more of a secure file vault at that point which I do believe is a suggestion already.

And evenly better, adding credit card via NFC

Thanks @vachan! I changed the title to reflect the OCR credit card item.

We do have a request to add/view images directly in a secure note:

That is not safe and people might misuse this. Can phones even tap into credit cards using NFC?

It contains only Card Number, Expiry Date, Names, but not the 3-digits CSC, therefore you can’t just “steal” it and use it. You still have to manually enter the CSC.

If you mean abusing it as a tool to get personal data such as names and Card Numbers, there isn’t any lacking of NFC reader apps out there anyway.

It’s also arguably easier to peek your card info when you’re taking a photo of it, than having someone to put their devices on your card / wallet without looking suspicious lol
