How secure is Apple Pay?

Apple Pay can be even more secure than using a traditional credit or debit card. Every transaction on your iPhone or iPad requires you to authenticate with 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. Your card number and identity aren’t shared with the merchant, and your actual card numbers aren’t stored on your device or on Apple servers.

How does Apple Pay keep my information private?

When you pay in stores, neither Apple nor your device sends your actual credit or debit card numbers to merchants. When you pay in apps, the merchant will only receive information like name, email address, billing and shipping addresses you authorize to share to fulfill your order. Apple Pay retains anonymous transaction information such as approximate purchase amount. This information can’t be tied back to you and never includes what you're buying. Apps that use Apple Pay must have a privacy policy that you can view which governs the use of your data.

Am I liable for fraudulent transactions?

No. Whether you use a digital account number or a physical Visa card, you are protected with Visa Zero Liability* against fraudulent transactions.

What if my physical Visa card is lost or stolen?

Contact us as soon as possible at 800.788.4578. Once you receive your replacement card you can add your new card to your Apple device.

In the meantime, you can continue to use your physical card without interruption.
