Do you share my Card Account number or other information with Apple?

We are not going to share your physical Card number with Apple. However, to deliver the best Apple Pay experience, we will display some Account information on your device for each American Express Card you have selected to use, such as your recent purchases, so that it is personalised to you.

You can turn off the display of transaction data at any time manually within Apple Pay by adjusting the ‘Transaction History’ for each Card.

As soon as you register your Card to your device, Apple may access and process some of your personal information, including information about your transactions in order to provide the Apple Pay service. Apple’s use of your personal information is solely governed by Apple’s privacy policy.

If you have any additional questions about your device’s security features, please visit the Apple Pay support pages.

How secure is an Apple Pay transaction?

Your Card in Apple Pay is protected by your unique ‘Touch ID’ using fingerprint technology and/or personal ‘Passcode’ that you use to access your device to help make it as secure as possible.

You must either use the ‘Touch ID’ or the ‘Passcode’ for your device to complete a transaction using Apple Pay.

All of your payment information is encrypted in a dedicated chip in your device, known as a Secure Element.

Can anyone other than myself pay for goods and services using my device?

Any person with your device ‘Passcode’ or a fingerprint registered to your device will be able to authorise transactions using your Card with Apple Pay.

You must keep your device safe and secure, and your device ‘Passcode’ secret. Do not let anyone else, including family members, have their fingerprint registered to your device while your Card is registered with it.

My device has been lost or stolen and I want to delete or suspend my Card. What should I do?

If your iPhone or iPad is lost or stolen, you can go to iCloud.com or use the 'Find My iPhone' app to suspend or permanently remove the ability to pay from that device with Apple Pay. Your Card(s) will be suspended or removed from Apple Pay even if your device is offline and not connected to a cellular or Wi-Fi network.
