Apple Pay Frequently Asked Questions

Why doesn't Apple Pay work on older devices?

Is Apple Pay secure?
Yes. Apple introduced a two-part security solution for Apple Pay. You must authenticate the transaction with your fingerprint using Touch ID™. Plus, your account information is not stored on the device. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is stored securely on the individual device. Even if someone hacked your phone, no account information can be stolen.
What is a Device Account Number?
For security and to protect your card number, a Device Account Number (sometimes referred to as a token account number) is created when you add your credit card to Apple Pay. This is a separate and unique device-specific number linked to your credit card. This Device Account Number may be different from your plastic card number. The last four digits of your Device Account Number are listed under the last four digits of your credit card number. To locate it, tap Wallet & Apple Pay, tap the card, and scroll down. It should be used whenever an Apple Pay merchant requests the last four digits of your credit card number.
