HOW SECURE IS APPLE PAY?
Apple Pay is the most secure way to pay as every transaction on your iPhone or iPad requires you to authenticate with Face ID, Touch ID or your passcode. Your Apple Watch is protected by the passcode that only you know, and your passcode is required every time you put on your Apple Watch.
When you use your phone to pay in stores, Apple Pay doesn’t send your actual credit or debit card number with your payment. Instead, an encrypted virtual account number is used to represent your information – so your real card details stay safe.
On top of the extra security offered by Apple Pay, you also get all the protections you would get with your debit and credit cards.
