Whenever you pay at an online store or in an app, the Online purchases and other distance purchases limit will be checked.

Security and safety

Apple Pay is very safe. Your card details won’t be saved to the apps or your device. To send a payment, Apple Pay uses a device-specific number and a transaction-specific code. Apple doesn’t have access to your payment card details and they won’t be given to merchants when you pay.

You will confirm each payment transaction with your device’s Touch ID, Face ID or passcode. It means that only you can pay with your card on Apple Pay. Because you won’t need your card’s PIN when you pay, no one will be able to steal a look at it. You can always be assured that you have your card with you on your device.

Apple Pay is an easy-to use, safe and touch-free payment method. You don’t need to touch the buttons of a card reader or handle cash when shopping. You can enjoy the same card benefits* and protection as when paying with your physical card.

If your phone is lost, unauthorised persons won’t be able to see your card details or pay with your phone. If you lose your card and deactivate it, you can get a new card available to you right away on your phone, if needed.
