Is Apple Pay secure?

Yes, paying with Apple Pay is even slightly safer than paying (contactless) with a plastic card. You confirm each transaction with Face ID, Touch ID, or an unlock code. 

When paying, the payment device connects to the built-in NFC chip on your device. This only works within a radius of 10 centimetres; only if you are very close to the device will data be exchanged. Your device must also be unlocked. For example, if the phone is in your bag, it will not work. Therefore, a safe way to pay! 

Your card details are well protected and not stored on an Apple server, thanks to credit card technology.
