The Security of Apple Pay

  • Fingerprint Authentication: You can authenticate payments using Touch ID or Face ID, ensuring that only you can authorize transactions.
  • No Card Numbers Stored: With Apple Pay, your actual card numbers are not stored on your device or Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is used for each transaction to enhance security.
