by Patil, Aniket V., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 45; 10638699
Abstract (Summary)

In the contemporary world, where smartphones have become an essential part of our day-to-day lives, Fortified Cards aims to let people monitor the security of their payments using their smartphones. Fortified Cards, as a project, is an endeavor to revolutionize credit or debit card payments using the Quick Response (QR) technology and the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number.

The emphasis in the Android application of Fortified Cards is on the QR technology, communication between two Android devices, and testing the application under situations that could possibly have a negative impact on the successful implementation of the project. The documentation of the project exemplifies the working of the application in a graphical format using an activity diagram, which is a step-by-step guide for any developer to gain a better insight and the detailed description of the successful implementation of the project.
