Android Pay FAQs

Important Information

Using Android Pay with an American Express card
Android Pay allows you to make purchases using your American Express Card with a compatible mobile device. Your Cardmember Agreement governs the use of your card in Android Pay.

You must keep your 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, and he or she uses your Card, we will treat that transaction as authorised.
We recommend you always use the device lock feature on your mobile device. For more information about safety and security click here.

Unauthorised Use and Lost/Stolen devices
Call us immediately using the number on the back of your Card if your mobile device has been lost, stolen or compromised in any way. We can suspend or remove your Card from Android Pay to prevent further unauthorised use.

Using your information
We will use your information in accordance with the American Express Online Privacy Statement. When you register your Card to your device, Google may access and process your information, including information about your transactions. Google’s use of your personal information is solely governed by Google's privacy policy.

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