Is Apple Pay secure?

Last Updated: 15 Feb 2019

Yes, using your ASB cards with Apple Pay is secure:

  • When you make a purchase, Apple Pay uses a device-specific number and a unique transaction code. Your full card number is never stored on your device or on Apple servers, and it can’t be shared with merchants. Apple Pay doesn’t keep transaction information that can be tied back to you, ensuring all purchases are private.
  • Every transaction on an iPhone, iPad or Mac requires you to authenticate with either Face ID, Touch ID or the device passcode. Apple Watch is protected by a passcode, and is required every time you put the Watch on.
  • Do not share your passcode or let anyone else, including family members, have their fingerprint registered to your device while your card is registered in Apple Pay.
