Google Pay on an Android device

Linking your American Express Card with Google Pay on your compatible Android device allows you to use the device to tap and pay in-store or make payments on compatible mobile apps and websites. Your Card Member Agreement governs the use of your card at all times.


You must keep your Android device and security credentials safe and secure at all times – in the same way you would your actual card or PIN. Never share your device security credentials or allow another person to register their fingerprint to your device, as that person will be able to make payments using your card. If you do allow someone access, you will be responsible for their use of your card.

We recommend you always use the device lock feature on your Android device. For more information about safety and security click here.

Unauthorised Use & Lost/Stolen Devices

Call us immediately using the number on the back of your card if your Android device has been lost, stolen or compromised in any way or if you become aware of any unauthorised use of your card in Google Pay. We can suspend your card to prevent further unauthorised use.

Using your information

When you link your Card with Google Pay on your Android device, we will use your information to manage your use of Google Pay, present you with updates and to display targeted offers and advertising from time to time. Google shares information with us for fraud and identification purposes. We always use your information in accordance with the American Express Online Privacy Statement.

Google may access and process your information, including information about your transactions. We share some of your information with Google to display to you in Google Pay, which Google uses in an aggregated and de-identified way to help improve Google Pay. Google’s use of your personal information is solely governed by Google’s privacy policy.

Using Google technology

Google may change Google Pay from time to time. American Express has no control over Google’s decisions to change Google Pay or any of its services or products (including Google’s terms of use or privacy policies). In order to use Google Pay, you must agree to Google’s terms of use and privacy policy.
