Your unique Touch ID or Face ID uses biometric technology to protect your Card. Every time you make a purchase, you’ll need to authorise the payment via Touch ID or Face ID. If you don’t have Touch ID or Face ID enabled for your device, you can elect to use your passcode instead.
Do not let anyone else, including family members, have their fingerprint registered to your device while your Card is registered in Apple Pay.
