Mobile payments offer top-notch security
One key advantage of mobile payments is their security: Your card number is not saved on your device. Once you add your card to the payment app, you will be assigned a unique device identifier known as a token. This encrypted token is securely stored on your device – not your credit card number. This means that merchants will not actually receive your card number when you make a payment, which protects you against fraud. Depending on your device, you can verify your identity with a fingerprint (Touch ID), facial recognition or a personally-defined PIN.
Don’t worry about losing your card while travelling or forgetting it in your hotel room: simply make mobile payments using your smartphone or your smartwatch. With mobile payment, your card is always ready for a transaction and enjoys an extra layer of security.
